On May 10th, the Met’s largest fashion exhibit to date will open, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic imagination,” with designs by Chanel, Rick Owens, and Dolce & Gabbana, among others. For this year’s celebratory gala, the Met’s Costume Institute advised guests to come dressed in their “Sunday best.” It’s safe to say the designers did not disappoint with their interpretations of Popes, cardinals, nuns, priests, gladiators and even stained glass windows.
“The Catholic imagination is rooted in and sustained by artistic practice, and fashion’s embrace of sacred images, objects, and customs continues the ever-evolving relationship between art and religion,” the Met’s president and CEO, Daniel H. Weiss, said on Monday morning.
