According to many sources, Fashion and Religion will be the 2018 Met Gala theme. Few of the sources claimed that they have access to exclusive information from the preliminary discussions. Until now the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute refused to give any official information. Considering the fact that there is plenty of time until the next Met Gala, the planning of the exhibition is still at its beginning.

The religious motifs aren’t something new in the fashion industry. Renewed designers such as John Galliano, Riccardo Tisci, and Jean Paul Gaultier have included religious symbols in some of their previous collections. John Galliano’s 2007 Couture Collection named The Virgins with the Serpents was all about the religion. The star of the campaign was Kylie Minogue who wore some of Galliano’s spring 2017 couture designs with religious elements. John Galliano also designed papal vestments for Dior Fall 2000 Haute Couture runway show. The fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has been inspired by the religion many times throughout the years. Their Fall 2013 Ready-to-wear Collection was strongly influenced by motifs from the Bible. The former creative director of Givenchy Riccardo Tisci is also known for his religious iconography obsession. Moreover, Christopher Kane fiercely mixed punk with religious motifs for his spring 2017 Ready-to-wear collection.

Considering the fact that the greatest designers of all times often incorporate religious motifs in their designs, the newest Met Gala theme shouldn’t surprise us. Besides designers, many celebrities have included elements of religion in their live performances, music videos, and personal style. The greatest pop star of all times Madonna, as well as the mega popular Lady Gaga, are just a few of the celebrities who celebrated the religion through their style and performances.
