The Met Gala is the fashion event of the year. It’s a who’s who in fashion, art, and culture. Each year it’s held at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. The soiree has gained public adoration in recent years due to social media bringing the everyday person into the fashion elite and celebrity “prom.” Although the Met Gala is affectionately referred to as prom, it’s actually a black-tie fundraiser that kicks off the institute’s spring exhibition.

The 2019 theme for the event and exhibition is “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” As the Met explains, the exhibit examines “camp’s exuberant aesthetic” and “how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.”

What is Camp?

Camp is something that provides sophisticated, knowing amusement, as by virtue of it being artlessly mannered or stylized, self-consciously artificial and extravagant, or teasingly ingenuous and sentimental, according to dictionary.
