Met Ball 2015: the theme

Are you ready

It seems like only yesterday that we were looking at the pictures from the 2014 Met Ball (because it pretty much was – remember how beautiful those Charles James-inspired gowns were?).

But the fashion world runs on apace, and word has it that next year's special exhibit (and, by extension, gala theme) has been decided upon. And it's a focus on China.

The rumoured theme, as first reported by WWD, isn’t actually a huge surprise given the recent success of brands such as Michael Kors, Burberry and Balenciaga in entering the country's lucrative designer market.


Needless to say, we can’t wait to see how our favourite designers interpret it.

Will they be as literal as Chanel’s pre-fall 2010 collection (see above), or altogether more subtle?
