The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.
After an intense 2020, and a not much smoother beginning to 2021, we are so excited to hear that the Met Gala is back! Best of all, we are going to have not one, but two exhibitions. Are you ready?! We so are!
On April 12th, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that the annual fashion exhibition would take place in two parts. The first, In America: Lexicon of Fashion will open on September 18th to commemorate the Costume Institutes 75th anniversary. The second exhibition—In America: An Anthology of Fashion—will begin on May 5, 2022. Both will run until September 5th of 2022. The opening of the first exhibition will be marked by the end of New York Fashion Week. And finally, (hopefully anyway!), this will be the moment we’ve been waiting for, the catwalk live.
