The Vera Wang Gang spent some time this week at the beautiful Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibition “Impressionism, Fashion, & Modernity”. The show is inspired, featuring paintings by great Impressionists such as Monet, Manet, Renoir and more. Every so often a painting is coupled with the actual dress depicted. This show is a must see for anybody who loves all things fashion, art, and culture.
