The In-Betweens: 2017 Met Gala Predictions

This year's Met Gala honors creative visionary Rei Kawakubo, founder of avant garde label Comme des Garçons (French translation: "like some boys) and also happens to be the fashion industry's biggest recluse.  Kawakubo studied neither design nor fashion in school, but instead fine arts which has been a key component of maintaining the brand's relevancy since 1969, influencing young visionaries like Edward Enninful along the way.  In true Comme des Garçon fashion, the Met Gala's theme celebrates the "in-between" of fashion and art.  Below are some designs from 2017 that we hope to see grace the red carpet, along with who we'd love to see in them.
