There are many bright events, the dress code of which implies the most non-standard images. One of them is MET Gala's annual costume institute ball in New York. Back in 1948, it was invented by Eleanor Lambert, who is also the founder of Fashion Week in the United States. In 1973, Diana Vreeland, a former editor of American Vogue, began organizing the ball. She proposed to arrange exhibitions of leading designers at the Costume Institute, confining MET Gala to this event. Thus, the dress code of the event appeared, obliging guests to dress in certain topics. This feature made the costume institute's ball almost more spectacular than the Oscar. Today, one of the most influential women in the fashion world is organizing MET Gala - Anna Wintour, editor of the American Vogue magazine. Another event, an integral part of which is an unusual costume – the Burning Man. It is much more than just a festival of contemporary art. For several days, the Black Rock desert in Nevada turns into the scene of a science fiction film. The appearance of star guests each time is amazing and has become, perhaps, more important than the festival headliners on stage. The dress code is “the brighter and more unusual the better”, and the number of accessories is just off scale.
You can’t do without a headdress! The streets of Milan during Fashion Week turn into a continuous carnival. You will not see this anywhere else. Out of competition, fans and guests of Gucci shows, who gather the best street fashion photographers from around the world, amazed by the most unexpected images. These and many other events for those who are not afraid to stand out from the crowd and also look for an opportunity to demonstrate their extravagance. Exquisite and colorful scenic images can serve as a source of inspiration. For example, such as in the musical “What women want”, which premiered this year at the Crave Moscow Theater. This performance took some inspiration from a French cabaret and dance theater with elements of modern choreography, media art, circus acrobatics and vocals. Tatiana Ashakova created most headwear for this exclusive stage performance together with a fashion designer Svetlana Evstigneeva. These looks have been praised by both the audience of the Russian capital and the press.
