Catholicism Takes Center Stage at The Met's Costume Institute

After celebrating Rei Kawakubo, The Met's Costume Institute in New York will celebrate Catholic motifs used in fashion dating back to the 20th century.

Inspired by the Catholicism, sumptuous creations from designers like Valentino, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana or Versace (sponsor of the exhibition) will interact with masterpieces from the museum's medieval collection in addition to eqaully extraordinary accessories, jewelry, and liturgical robes lent by the Vatican, some of which come directly from the Sistine Chapel.
