Art + Fashion

15:03

10/05/18 - A few days ago, the Metropolitan Museum (New York) celebrated its annual gala to raise funds for the Costume Institute, marking also the opening of the exhibition "Heavenly Bodies: fashion and Catholic imagination". An array of celebrities and dresses related to this subject paved the stairs of the museum, many inspired by ecclesiastical costumes, but also Renaissance paintings.  This appropriation has been recurrent in the fashion world, a mixture of the sacred and the profane. The historical and symbolic meaning of these artworks is left aside to result in a visually intriguing dress, yet lacking all content.
