The Met hosted a press presentation at Teatro Gerolamo in Milan today, ahead of the spring 2019 Costume Institute exhibition, "Camp: Notes on Fashion." Featuring our Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture SS19 Fashion Statements ‘Less is More’ look.
Opening May 9, the exhibition will explore the origins of the camp aesthetic, and how it has evolved from a place of marginality to become an important influence on mainstream culture. Susan Sontag's 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp’" provides the framework for the exhibition, which will examine how fashion designers have used their métier to engage with camp.
