The most anticipated fashion celebration is finally back after being cancelled last year. The Met Gala is happening this year, but not in May 2021 but in September 2021.
The most celebrated fashion event of the year, the Met Gala, is back and has a two-part exhibition and an American theme. The latest fashion news about the coming back of the Met Gala is trending all over the websites and social media. The fashion event got cancelled last year due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. But this year, it is finally returning in a two-part fiesta, considering the current pandemic situation.
On 12th April 2021, Monday, the Costume Institute announced the coming back of the most waited fashion night. Traditionally reserved for the first Monday of May, the Met Gala is happening on September 18, 2021, due to the current situation. This time, it is a two-time celebration, one in September and the other on May 5, 2022. Thus, it will have closure on September 5, 2022. No cumbersome gatherings, only limited guests showcasing the latest fashion trends, will adhere to the event, making it an intimate affair.
The Met Gala is also known as the Costume Institute Gala or Met Ball. It is a glamorous fashion night not less than Oscars that celebrates the top looks of fashion designers, musicians, sportspeople, actors and actresses across the world. It is a fashion exhibition that acts as a fundraiser gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, also celebrates the Costume Institute's magnificent fashion showcase, fashion trends and changing themes. Initiated in 1946, it has now become one of the largest and anticipated fashion affairs that epitomizes grandeur and style. Also, it has become a platform for fashion designers to showcase their latest trends, style, creativity, and innovation.
The latest fashion news about the Met Gala also opens up about the two themes. On September 18, 2021, the exhibition will open up with a theme of "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion." It will explore the modern American style, quality dressing, and diversity. It will take place in a gallery that will feature a "fictional American home constructed of transparent walls." The interiors will resonate with the 20-21st century fashion style. The "American sportswear will be displayed along with the contemporary designers to illustrate the shift in American fashion" by @metcostumeinstitue.
The second part of the event that will open up on May 5, 2022, will explore the development and innovation of American Fashion. The second part titled, "In America: An Anthology of Fashion," will take place in the American wing of the Met @metamericanwing in the period rooms that feature America from the colonial era.
The Met Gala has its official dates that will celebrate a new theme of honouring America by exploring American Fashion and a new idea of the two-part event due to the current on-going pandemic situation.
