Fashion is an art form and if you had any misgivings about this truism, I suggest you take up your argument only after you’ve watched The First Monday in May. Director Andrew Rossi, whose 2011 documentary Page One: Inside The New York Times proved to be somewhat of an eyeopener and won him an Emmy, took a departure from his usual line of inquiry and shifted his lens towards the world of fashion. This 90-minutes long documentary, commissioned by Anna Wintour herself, follows Andrew Bolton, Head Curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute as he goes about curating what would become one of the biggest fashion exhibits The Met has put out to date (surpassing even the ever-popular Savage Beauty). From concerns about cultural misrepresentation to issues of logistics and deadlines, this roller-coaster of a film shows the chaos that goes behind a curation while raising the perpetual question – can fashion be considered art? Needless to say, this film will change your perception of both. Watch the trailer below.
