Maison Margiela: “ A look back at Katy Perry’s fitting for the 2017 MET Gala. The outfit combines a number of elements taken from the Maison Margiela Spring-Summer 2017 ‘Artisanal’ collection by John Galliano.
The look took over 350 hours to complete by multiple seamstresses in Maison Margiela’s atelier, with an additional week needed for the garments to be fully embroidered.”
