The Met Costume Institute Gala and Exhibition: American Women

Even though it might seem like we were just touring the halls of The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion, it is already time (at least for us) to start planning for the 2010 Costume Institute exhibition and gala. To that end, the Metropolitan Museum of Art today announced the much anticipated theme: American Women: Fashioning a National Identity.

The exhibition, which will run from May 5, 2010 to August 15, 2010, will harness the resources of the newly established Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Met and it will take a closer look at American women from 1890-1940 and how these women have influenced our perceptions of the modern woman. The exhibition (which will include pieces not seen in public for the past 30 years) will be curated by Andrew Bolton with the support of Harold Koda and the production designer will be Nathan Crowley, a film designer whose credits include The Dark Knight and Public Enemies.

And what about the Party of the Year, you ask? The annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit will take place at the museum on Monday, May, 3, 2010 at the Met, and it will be hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Patrick Robinson of the Gap, and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue.

According to co-chair Patrick Robinson, the partnership between the Gap, Vogue and Met seemed like the perfect partnership at the perfect time. “Gap is part of the American heritage,” says Robinson. “Especially for the modern woman. If you look at snapshots throughout our forty-year history, you can see it reflected in the fashion of the times—from Sharon Stone wearing a Gap tee-shirt to the Oscars, to the idea of wearing kahki on “casual Fridays” to, more recently, when we dressed the entire floor of the New York Stock Exchange in denim. It just makes sense that women would express themselves over the years with an iconic American brand that evolves with them.”

Gap President Marka Hensen shares in his excitement. ”It’s a really wonderful feeling for us to be involved in such a special and important event,” Hensen says. “There is a great synchronicity among all the elements—this idea of being both empowered and inclusive—that is very much in line with our brand.” As to what she plans to wear to the gala? “I’ll start worrying about that in the spring,” she laughs. “Right now, I still have no idea!”
