About The First Monday in May
“Fashion can create a dream, create a fantasy, it’s a kind of theater.” - Anna Wintour
An unprecedented look behind the scenes of two of New York’s premier cultural events, The First Monday in May follows the creation of “China: Through The Looking Glass,” the most-attended fashion exhibition in the history of The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the 2015 Met Gala, the star-studded fundraiser that celebrates the opening of the exhibition.
Acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Rossi follows Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton during the crucial eight months before the 2015 gala, as they orchestrate the year’s most lavish party. With unprecedented access, the documentary captures the collision of high fashion and celebrity at the Met Gala and, featuring a cast of renowned creatives including fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier as well as a host of contemporary pop icons like Rihanna, dives into the debate about whether fashion should be viewed as art.
This is a special opportunity to be among the first to view The First Monday In May which opens exclusively at Light House Cinema, Smithfield, Dublin 7 on Friday September 30th.
