Each year, on the first Monday in May, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York opens its doors to host the biggest event on the fashion calendar, The Met Gala, the opening night party to the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibition. THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY follows Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, as they orchestrate the year’s most lavish party and The Met’s most attended fashion exhibition in history, ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’. With unprecedented access, filmmaker Andrew Rossi offers an exclusive all-access pass to the creation of the exhibition that explores China’s substantial influence on Western fashion. Featuring legendary film and fashion creatives including Wong Kar Wai, Baz Luhrmann, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and André Leon Talley, and intimate access to contemporary pop icons like Rihanna, THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY explores whether fashion should be viewed as art and captures the creativity, passion, and inspiration behind the exhibition and gala
