Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination

At The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters
May 10–October 8, 201

In this magnificent installation we see the influence of religious art on innovative fashions. This Met exhibition is extravagant and heavenly!!

The Costume Institute's spring 2018 exhibition—at The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters—features a dialogue between fashion and medieval art from The Met collection to examine fashion's ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.

The visual reference of the exhibition, papal robes and accessories from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside The Vatican, are on view in the Anna Wintour Costume Center. Fashions from the early twentieth century to the present are shown in the Byzantine and medieval galleries, part of the Robert Lehman Wing, and at The Met Cloisters.
