The relationship between religion & fashion. 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute will focus on the relationship between fashion and religion for its May 2018 exhibit, according to WWD--a theme that could easily spark controversy on the Met Gala red carpet.

Sources say the idea came long before the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: The Art of the In-Between show opened, also revealing that the concept is currently in very primitive stages of planning. Despite this circulating information, a spokeswoman for the MET refused to comment on the subject.

Religion has often been inspiration for fashion, with designers incorporating religious references, such as symbols and Saints, into their clothes. From Jeremy Scott including visuals of Jesus to Dolce & Gabbana representing the Madonna on the runway, religion in fashion always causes a stir and one shouldn't expect anything less from the First Monday in May.
