- Met Gala 2020 Theme Announced: “About Time: Fashion and Duration”
- The Costume Institute Revealed The 2020 Met Gala Theme
- Next year’s Met Gala theme revealed
Vogue has announced that the theme this year is “About Time: Fashion & Duration.” Last year’s theme was camp, while the prior year’s was Catholicism.
Apparently, the inspiration for this year’s theme comes from a film called #Orlando that showcases fashions from the 18th and 20th century!
According to the vogue.com;
The year 2020 is a milestone for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The New York institution will celebrate its 150th anniversary with a series of exhibitions, many of which will put the spotlight on masterworks in its collections, as well as new acquisitions made as part of the 2020 Collections Initiative in honor of the anniversary.
In keeping with the year’s theme, today the Met announced that the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition will showcase a century-and-a-half of fashion history culled from its archive and presented along a “disruptive” timeline.
“About Time: Fashion and Duration,” says Andrew Bolton, Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute, takes a “nuanced and open-ended” approach. “It’s a reimagining of fashion history that’s fragmented, discontinuous, and heterogeneous.”
The gala will be co-chaired by Nicolas Ghesquière of Louis Vuitton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, and Anna Wintour.
