The exhibition features nearly 100 designs for men and women, including original punk garments and recent, directional fashion that examines how haute couture and ready-to-wear glean from punk.

Themes include New York and London, which tell punk's origin as a story reminiscent of a tale of two cities, followed by Clothes for Heroes and four manifestations of the D.I.Y. aesthetic—HardwareBricolageGraffiti and Agitprop, and Destroy.

Fashionable First Ladies

First ladies are fashion influencers in their own right. Good or bad, they've topped many best-dressed lists and some of their choices are so daring they spark debate.

Here are three of the most powerful first ladies making global headlines for their fashion sense.

Qatar's Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser al-Missned is a habitué on Vanity Fair magazine's International Best-Dressed List. She's never caught without her national headdress, a turban. A second of three wives of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, she's seen here wearing a Stéphane Rolland cream tuxedo gown accessorized with a textured clutch and matching belt, sunglasses and diamond earrings.

Queen ‘Masenate Mohato Seeiso is the Queen Consort of King Letsie III of Lesotho. Her story matches that of Diana Spencer, who later to become known as Princess Diana (of Wales), she was a commoner when she married into royalty in 2000.  Queen 'Masenate likes to switch things up. She wears both traditional dress, with the most striking patterns, or you will catch a snap of her in a simple suit.

First lady of the U.S. Michelle Obama is following in iconic first lady Jackie O's footsteps. She's been a covergirl on Vogue magazine twice. She's responsible for the explosive careers of up-and-coming fashion designers including Jason Wu, whom she wore during both presidential inaugurations for her husband President Barack Obama. This is my favorite look. She's wearing a custom sleeveless nude gown with silver sequins by Indian designer Naeem Khan.

A pioneer and iconic fashion designer Stephen Burrows, who has been dubbed one of the first African American designers to achieve international acclaim and by the New York Times as the “brightest star of American fashion” (circa 1977), will take part in the first major examination of his work titled Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced at the Museum of the City of New York.

A major force in the Grande Divertissement à Versailles, a revolutionary fashion charity event held in Paris in 1973 that changed the European fashion world's perspective on American designers, Burrows was a peer among America’s fashion’s elite: Halston, Anne Klein, Bill Blass, and Oscar de la Renta. The fashion quintet leveled the playing field by challenging the ruling class comprised of designers Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Ungaro, Pierre Cardin, and Hubert de Givenchy.

The exhibition chronicles Burrows’ evolution from creating eclectic looks during the 1960’s, working with retailer Henri Bendel and Studio 54, to dressing style icons like Cher, Liza Minnelli and Diana Ross during the 1970s with photographs, drawings, and original garments.

Burrows' fascination with vibrant colors, metallic, and body clinging silhouettes made his designs ideal for nightlife glamour.

It opens on March 22, 2013.
