Exploring the blurring lines between threads and technology, the 2016 Met Gala will reveal an insight to the future of the fashion world

The 2016 Met Gala promises to be another stand-out style event with a stellar cast already confirming their place in the fashionable line-up. Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Miuccia Prada and Apple's Jonathan Ive will all co-host the event. Vogue's Anna Wintour and Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld will also serve as honorary chairs.

The official and much talked about theme for next year's exhibition is Manus x Machine: Fashion in the Age of Technology. The curator for the show Andrew Bolton explains 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." We predict a red carpet dazzling with new dimensional wear when the event takes place on May 2, 2016.
