Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination



The Met's spring 2018 Costume exhibition, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, explores the relationship and influence of Catholicism on fashion. If you frequent the annual fashion installation, this one will have a bit of a different feel.

For starters the exhibit is on view The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters in New York. Secondly, the exhibit is seamlessly integrated amongst the Met's Mid-evil collection and the exhibit is on view almost immediately after walking into the museum. This feels like less of a production and more of a natural extension of the Met's permanent collection. Nonetheless, the fashion on display features unworldly embellishment, craftsmanship, and opulence that could only be demanded under such holy circumstances.

Tips for visiting:
  • Make sure to visit The Anna Wintour Costume institute to see items that are on view for the first time ever outside of the Vatican
  • New York Residents can pay admission by donation
  • Check if your employer or bank is a corporate sponsor, they often offer discounted or free admission 
  • Visit during a weekday or early mornings on the weekends to avoid large groups
  • Make the trip up to the cloisters to see the rest of the exhibit, same day admission to the Cloister is included in your ticket
