The First Monday in May




This fashion film follows the creation of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's most attended fashion exhibition in history, "China: Through The Looking Glass," an exploration of Chinese-inspired is a behind the scenes documentary of the 2015 historic exhibition by Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. “It’s a kind of theater … fashion can create a dream, create a fantasy,” opines Vogue”editor-in-chief Wintour at the opening of “First Monday in May” at the Tribeca Film Festival. According to movie reviewer Chef Flynn, the movie portrays the glitzy fashion world “Super Bowl” that raises millions for the Institute by attracting political, fashion, movie and music luminaries. The red-carpet arrival of modern celebrity power at the classical Met — and the resultant marriages forged between the gallery and the runway, the museum and commerce — is a contrast of opposites.
