This year’s Gala’s theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” pays homage to the late Chanel creative director.
The Costume Institute describes the spring 2023 exhibition as an exploration of “the work of Karl Lagerfeld. Focusing on the designer’s stylistic vocabulary as expressed in aesthetic themes that appear time and again in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019, the show will spotlight the German-born designer’s unique working methodology.”
The exhibition will additionally showcase about 150 of Lagerfeld’s designs, as well as some of his sketches, both of which “underscore his complex creative process and the collaborative relationships with his premières, or head seamstresses. Lagerfeld’s fluid lines united his designs for Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and his eponymous label, Karl Lagerfeld, creating a diverse and prolific body of work unparalleled in the history of fashion.”
