The most exciting day in fashion is coming near us. The Met Gala presented by Vogue at the Metropolitian Museum of Art in New York is the exclusive star studded event hosted by Vogues editor in Chief, Anna Wintour. It is an annual fundraiser gala for the help of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It’s also the start of the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.
Everyone remembers the extraordinary Met Gala theme last year “Camp: Notes on Fashion”. The over the top gowns and who can forget Zendaya coming in, in a Cinderella like gown that glowed and showcased true black girl magic.
Well this years Met Gala theme will be “About Time: Fashion and Duration”. At first when the theme was released, I had know idea on what this would be about. But after doing vigorous research, I found and understood the meaning.
This years exhibition will take a look at the comparison of fashion over time. It will look over the history of the incredible fashion from 1870 to the present day. The Museum calls this exhibit the “Disruptive Timeline”. During the exhibit, the late Virginia Woolf will act as the narrator.
The exhibit will feature about 160 pieces from the late 1800s to present day. Some of these pieces will intercross different eras. The exhibit will run from May 7th to September 7th.
I’m excited to see how people will incorporate the theme with their outfits this year !
