All you wanted to know about the 2022 Met Gala01.04.2022
“In America: An Anthology of Fashion” is the 2022 Met Gala theme. It celebrates undiscovered heroes of American design and focuses on American style. Although Kim Kardashian has been climbing the Met steps since then in her Balenciaga Mask, it will be eight months before this year’s ceremony. This is a return to the traditional first Monday of May slot for the event after two years of COVID chaos.
Here’s everything you need about the 2022 Met Gala.
When is the Met Gala 2022
The 2022 Met Gala will be held in New York City on Monday, 2 May. The Costume Institute exhibit will be celebrating the second volume. In America: An anthology of Fashion opened September 18th. It was followed by the 2021 Met Gala September 13th.
What theme is the Met Gala 2022?
Part two will be titled In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Andrew Bolton (head curator of the Museum of Modern Art’s Costume Institute) will focus on inclusivity and fashion. At Prabal Gurung’s spring/summer 2020 show it was asked “Who gets to become American?”. This question will also be addressed at the Met Gala 2022.
The exhibition is displayed in 13 American period rooms of the museum. Bolton explained to Vogue that it “provides Lexicon with a historical context.” He says that the stories reflect American fashion’s evolution, but also examine the work of individual dress-makers, tailors, and designers. It’s interesting to me that while some of these names are familiar to fashion students, such as Charles James, Halston and Oscar de la Renta; many of the others have been overlooked, forgotten or left out of fashion history. The exhibition’s main purpose is to highlight the contributions and talents of these individuals. Many of them are women.
Who will host the Met Gala in 2022?
Vogue announced on March 17 that the 2022 hosts of its night would be Blake Lively and Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as Tom Ford and Instagram’s Adam Mosseri. Vogue’s Anna Wintour and Vogue’s Tom Ford will remain honorary cochairs.
When was the Met Gala 2021?
The Costume Institute announced two versions of the 2021 and 2022 Met Galas. The first, which featured a theme of In America, A Lexicon of Fashion opened on September 18. The 2021 Met Gala, which was co-chaired and hosted by Naomi Osaka, Billie Eilish and Amanda Gorman, opened five days earlier, on September 13.
What was the Met Gala 2021 theme like?
Part one featured American designers as well as the cultural, political, and social events that took place during the pandemic. Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute at the time, stated to Vogue that “the main one was to acknowledge the support we have received from the American fashion community for 75 years” He felt that it was time to revisit the topic (American Ingenuity, 1998 was the last major exhibition to address the subject).
Bolton stated that “I believe that the emphasis upon conscious creativity was really consolidated throughout the pandemic” and “the social justice movements.” “And I have been very impressed by American designers’ responses on the political and social climate, especially around issues such as body inclusivity or gender fluidity. I find their work very self-reflective. American fashion is experiencing a Renaissance, I believe. Young designers are leading the charge in discussions about diversity, inclusion, sustainability, and transparency more than their European counterparts (with the possible exception of the English designers).”
How do I view the Met Gala 2022?
