A robe can be an artist’s muse, and intricately designed and beautifully made garments are works of art in their own right. We showcase the art of fashion with a series of films about the fascinating fashion industry introduced by fashion expert Angela Lassig, who will put modern-day haute couture and street apparel in historic perspective.
This programme is supported by streaming platform DocPlay, which offers a curated collection of thought-provoking documentaries from around the world.
In the documentary The First Monday in May we closely follow the creation of China: Through the Looking Glass, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's most successful fashion exhibition to date.
