  • By:karen-millen



High Fashion Twitter (@HFMetGala) es un grupo de gente joven de diferentes partes del mundo que se dedica desde su cuenta a postear, debatir y aprender sobre moda. Uno de los eventos que más trae unión a esta comunidad es la Met Gala, ya que se discute lo que sucede previo, durante y posteriormente a ese día. La pandemia, complico este debate, pero la comunidad pensó en hacer su propia MET Gala, dentro de Twitter, y bajo sus propias reglas.Una argentina en la organización de la Met Gala virtual Una argentina en la organización de la Met Gala virtual

The main goal is to give a platform to young and new designers and creatives that are part of the community.To participate it is necessary to register in a form consisting of five categories and different ways of being part.The options are: Photoset Creation, a Moodboard/Collage representing the look you would wear.

In Brand Challenge, as Anna Wintour (director of Vogue Us) for the Met Gala is usually done, a random brand is assigned to those who choose this category.An Argentina, Sofía Abadi, in charge of the visual identity and branding of the event, says: “The idea was to choose not so well -known brands or those that are not talked so much to make the participant have to get into their files and reportmore of the same ”.

Wardrobe Styling, consists of creating your own look with clothes you have at home.Finally, Illustration Expression, is a sketch of an original look designed by the participant and, finally, a freer option where the user can be part of this in the manner of it.

Following the steps of the original event, the @HFmetgala team decided to collect funds for the IMC (International Medical Corps), an international humanitarian organization that helps in times of crisis.During the pandemic, BMI is training thousands of health workers and providing supplies around the world.In exchange for a donation of 5 USD, the team decided to create its own e-book with texts on the theme and the best looks of the HF Met Gala, inspired by the one Andrew Bolton does every year.
