The  exhibition  “Art of the in-between” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) in New York City shows the work of Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons womenswear. With her abstract, alienating forms she is constantly stretching boundaries and questioned concepts as beauty, body, fashion and taste. She has the ability to change high-fashion womenswear. After Yves Saint Laurent in 1983, Kawakubo is the second living designer having a show dedicated solely at the MET.
