The Met Museum is famed for it’s yearly Costume Institute exhibitions, which have in the past seen the iconic venue play home to Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the Inbetween, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology and memorably China: Through the Looking Glass, which attracted 671,234 visitors back in 2015, making the show the museum’s best attended ever.
Next year, the Met Costume Institute will host Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Unravelling the impact of “material Christianity” on “the Catholic imagination”, the exhibition will include work by Riccardo Tisci, Coco Chanel, John Galliano and Christian Lacroix and papal garments on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy which have not to date been seen outside the Vatican. Fittingly, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination is sponsored by Versace.
Vogue announced that Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace are to host the Met Gala, which will open the exhibition on 7 May 2018.
