Met Gala 2024

This year, the Met Gala 2024 theme pays homage to history, more specifically, vintage pieces that are too fragile to be worn again. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute has chosen the honorable theme of “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” and will exhibit 50 historical pieces that have been cared for over many years and are too delicate to be worn (unless you’re Kim Kardashian maybe). There are set to be rare pieces on display that have never been seen before and therefore will awaken many fashion influencers, creators, bloggers, and experts in the industry who want to delve more into the details of the past – bringing it to the present.

According to the Met, the exhibition has 250 garments and accessories spanning four centuries. The collection will go as deep as cyclical themes of rebirth and renewal and will breathe new life into fashion through immersive activations to heighten all of our senses. Designers’ works in the permanent collection include Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and more.

Combining old with new, the Met Gala 2024 will also use modern-day technology such as artificial intelligence and computer-generated imagery as part of the show. This is to create an immersive experience and produce something unique. Nature will also be a focus of the exhibit, again to highlight the themes of rebirth and renewal.

The Met Gala 2024 doors will open in May and with only 6 months to go, it’s time to start collecting your vintage pieces. Celebrities are yet to be confirmed, but we are excited to see who will wear what to bring to history to life.
