Cartoon: Wearing off fashion

The theme for this year’s Met Gala was “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” with the dress code of “The Garden of Time,” based on J.G. Ballard’s short story. The Metropolitan Museum of Art stated that the theme reflects clothes that utilize the five senses, which are so fragile they cannot be worn again. The dress code references nature, which many celebrities, such as co-host Zendaya, beautifully captured in their looks. While the event brought forth many unique looks, it is ironic how the theme is “one-time use.” At the same time, the dress code is nature, a topic related to sustainability, a juxtaposition to the nature of the Met Gala. To truly respect the theme and pay a true ode to nature, it would have been wise for the Met Gala to incorporate reusable, eco-friendly fashion. (Keira Sarmiento)
