“Camp: Notes on Fashion” explores the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic and how the sensibility evolved from a place of marginality to become an important influence on mainstream culture.The Metropolitan Musuem of Art (@metmuseum)
The first Monday of May is a day that has become the fashion industry’s biggest night of the year. Every year, celebrities of the highest status flock the steps of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to get a first look at this year’s Costume Institute, also known as the Anna Wintour Costume Center. This past Monday, May 6, the gala took on the theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion.”
For anyone who does not understand what “camp” is exactly, it is like “having a dress with 3,000,000 feathers.” The term camp was first coined by African-American drag queens as a way to try and one-up one another. It is a subjectively tough theme to take on, making each look authentic to the wearer.
