How did the 2024 Met Gala theme “The Garden of Time” inspire Sabrina Harrison’s look? What was fueling your creativity at the time of ideation?

Back in March, Sabrina had expressed that the idea of clocks came like a vision, and she and stylist Carlos [Alonso-Parada] wanted to create a look that was made of watches. She wanted to carry the theme to a headpiece, gloves and even [a] handbag [or an] oversized iPhone case.

The bag was also something that Sabrina introduced as a concept. She wanted to have a bag that played a video of past Met looks.

"I love opportunities to experiment with tech, so I jumped at her idea for the TikTok-inspired bag with a video display feature. I sketched out a few ideas of how it could look, but the winner was this minimalist teardrop and egg-shaped style with a cracked window built to house an iPhone 15 with a custom video by Nolan Kiser at the center. I didn’t know how it would come out, but it has become one of [my] favorite pieces we have made in my career. "

Your work on Sabrina’s look is so meticulous and detailed—can you walk us through your favorite aspects of it?

"It’s funny because I’m used to getting a lot of requests specifically for music artists who are usually shooting a music video or album cover, where a tiny mistake in design can be edited or hidden out of sight.When it comes to such a large platform like the Met Gala, where every inch of a person’s body is put under scrutiny, there is no room for error. So naturally, we have to take every last detail into consideration. I’m really proud of how we incorporated the clocks and of all the work my team did on this. Everyone worked for this exciting common goal—our first-ever full look at the Met! "
