This year’s theme has officially been unveiled...get ready for “Manus x Machina,” a grand homage to fashion in an age of technology. The coinciding show will feature over 100 examples of fashion from haute couture to prêt-à-porter, all with a captivating focus on the juxtaposition between handmade and machine-made pieces. Watch 3D-printed work in the making alongside other new technologies such as laser cutting, thermo shaping, and circular knitting, making for a full 360-degree experience sponsored by none other than Apple -- a match made in fashion-meets-tech heaven. Idris Elba, Jonathan Ive, Taylor Swift, and Anna Wintour will co-chair this year’s gala along with honorary chairs Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada.
