Heavenly Bodies Part 1.

HEAVENLY BODIES, FASHION AND THE CATHOLIC IMAGINATION | The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This is by far one of the most beautiful exhibits I’ve experienced at The Met. It’s at 2 sites. The Fifth Avenue Museum and The Cloisters. I haven’t had a chance to visit the Cloisters yet, hence the Part 1. I’ll post back with photos from The Cloisters at a later date. I love how the fashion is blended with the artwork. The music is pretty fantastic too. If I had to choose a favorite piece it would have to be the black silk taffeta dress by Alexander Mcqueen. This is just a very small sampling. Be sure to click on the videos to get more of a feel for the exhibit.
The McQueen was my favourite one too! And, although completely out of context, it still found its place among religion-inspired gowns – McQueen would certainly have had a good laugh about this!
