I’m sure that if you are a fashion fan you’ve already heard about the MET Gala and the amazing exhibitions associated to it if you’re not, the MET Galais an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It’s organized by Vogue, with the leadership of Anna Wintour.
After the Gala with numerous celebrities, whose dresses are inspired in the yearly theme, they open the exhibition to the public.
As an architect, I must confess that I would love to work on a project like this!
The concept, the staging, the exhibition, the lighting, everything thought in detail… the design is reviewed several times and the result is amazing!
This year the theme is: how the religion influenced fashion through the years? The result is beautiful! Delicate dresses full of golden materials, embroidery, printed images, and jewelry. You can see designs from all the big fashion brands and designers like Dior, Dolce and Gabanna, and Valentino.
They’ve divided the exhibition into two parts: on in the MET and another in the cloisters. In both places, if you leave in New York they just ask you for a donation as a payment, you give what you want.
Apart from the exhibition, if you’ve never been to The Cloisters, it worth the trip. The garden is beautiful, and the view is amazing! During the climb, you will have the impression that you’re outside of New York… it’s quiet and peaceful, no sirens, no traffic, no confusion! The promenade is almost a preparation to arrive at the monastery that imposes itself as a big stone on the top of the hill. The architecture eclectic, with architectural sections from all over the world, and it has a lot of interior courtyards that are decorated with beautiful plants. The exhibition is spread all over the place, and the theme couldn’t have a better scenario.
In both places, the fashion dresses are mixed with the existing religious pieces of the permanent exhibition, and the ambiance is completed with the lighting and the religious music.
