Occuring the first Monday in May, the annual Met Gala is the main fundraiser for The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute. The event is organized in partnership with Vogue. It inagurates the year’s exhibit and brings together members of the fashion industry for a dinner at the museum. This year’s exhibit took place at The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters, threading a dialogue between fashion, medievel art, and Catholic traditions.
