Heavenly Bodies: ­Fashion and the ­Catholic Church

Through October 8, 2018

The Met Fifth Avenue & The Met Cloisters

Every year The Met unveils a new spring exhibition that is bound to wow its audience. This year The Met went holy with its theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Church.” It features a dialogue between fashion and medieval art and the ongoing conversation about devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism. Papal robes and accessories from the Sistine Chapel sacristy were featured as the cornerstone of the exhibition, many of which have not seen the light of day outside of The Vatican. In the Byzantine and medieval galleries, you can find an arrangement of early 20th-century to present-day fashions. Guests will enjoy heavenly couture that is truly up close and personal. The exhibition is made possible by Christine and Stephen A. Schwarzam and Versace, with additional support from Condé Nast.
