The Met Ball 2016 will be tech-themed - chaired by Taylor Swift, Idris Elba and Apple's Jonny Ive
The annual Met Ball, often referred to as the Fashion Oscars, will be chaired by celebrities Taylor Swift and Idris Elba, alongside industry heavyweights Anna Wintour, Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld and Miuccia Prada.
It's the most glamorous and star studded event of the year, and the next installment will be no different.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's 2016 Costume Institute exhibit will have a technological theme, exploring how innovations and advancements have changed how we wear and view fashion.
The exhibit will be entitled, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" and will feature 100 pieces of haute couture and ready-to-wear garments.
The exhibition will also have several workshops, including 3-D printing which will demonstrate to the public will be able to see these designs take shape.
Fittingly, Apple's Chief Design Officer Jonny Ive will join the likes of US Vogue's Anna Wintour as a co-chair for the exhibition.
The illustrious opening night brings together the leading names in fashion, entertainment and society. So we can expect to see a lot of intricate technology-inspired outfits in keeping with the theme.
The Costume Institute's curator Andrew Bolton told US Vogue that, "Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made.
"But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other."
The exhibit will be sponsored by Apple.
