Train for a Wedding Dress
There is an exhibit at the Met called "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," an exploration of technology's impact on fashion. This particular piece is a train for a wedding dress, designed by Karl Lagerfeld for House of Chanel (In case you want to buy one of these.) I am not sure how practical it is - I think that the train is more than 25 feet long! I was more interested in the women photographing the dress with their phones. I only spent about 15 minutes in the exhibit - I guess I fail the fashion test!
