More than the fashion week in Paris or New York, more than the Oscars or the Golden Globes, the MET Gala organized by the prestigious New York museum with the director of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour, is undoubtedly the most important fashion event of the year.
Every year, the lucky ones who receive an invitation to the gala pose on the museum's already mythical stairs accompanied by the designers of the moment and trying to adjust to the theme that the organization proposes each year. The last one was about paying tribute to the Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, creative genius behind the firm Comme des Garçons, and the previous one, “ManusXMachina” was inspired by the relationship between fashion and technology.
However, the theme chosen for the gala to be held on the first Monday of the month of May 2018 has not sat well with everyone and is possibly the most controversial in the history of this party. According to the portal specialized in fashion WWD, several sources have confirmed that the next gala will explore the relationship between fashion and religion, although the preparations for the event are still in a preliminary phase.
Designers such as John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Riccardo Tisci or Dolce & Gabbana have long found inspiration for their collections in religious elements and combined their garments on the catwalk with crosses, veils, biblical icons and rosaries or even printing the face of a virgin in T-shirts and dresses.
For or against, what is clear is that if the gala continues with this theme, next year's promises to be the most controversial edition of the most important event with fashion. Can you imagine what Beyoncé will wear?
