With the recent opening of The Met’s 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, punk’s influence on the world of high fashion is in the spotlight, and rightfully so. There hasn’t been an exhibition I wanted to see this badly since Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. Sadly, I don’t live anywhere near New York, but I can still dream. This mix of “high” and “low” style is my dream come true. I may have traded in my combat boots and bondage pants for heels and jackets, but I’ll never stop loving punk fashion!
