Zac Posen created an incredible Tech Dress for the Met Gala 2016 and chose Claire Danes to be his muse to wear it.
Zac Posen sourced the fiber optic woven organza in this dress from France, and there are 30 mini battery packs sewn into the gown’s understructure. “I went through a sequence of stages throughout the process of draping this gown, playing with motion and structure to capture the emotional engineering. The gown is hollow underneath with no tulle – holding its own structure,” he said in a statement.

The Met Gala – the party of the year, as well as the fashion industry’s most pivotally important red carpet – is finally here. The evening’s event on the first Monday in May is a glamorous event where the museum’s exhibitions and the sartorial choices of the designers are given an equal playing field.
This years theme is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
And Zac Posen did truly that.
