Explore The Met's "Heavenly Bodies" Exhibition
on 11 May 2018
While there was no missing the coverage surrounding the Met Gala—whether it's the reportage, live-tweeting, or ensuing memes—sometimes the celebrity fanfare gets more attention than the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's spring exhibition. This year the show is titled "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" and explores the connection between the religion's iconography, symbolism, imagery and how this identity has influenced the world of fashion. The immense show (spread across two locations, 25 galleries and 60,000 square feet) features striking pieces from Alexander McQueen, YSL, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rick Owens, Galliano, Gareth Pugh and much more. There's majesty galore—and it doesn't cease to surprise. See more at dezeen.
