New York, September 30 (EFE). The Metropolitan Museum of New York will honor fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld (1933-2019) at the upcoming Met Gala, whose theme will be inspired by the style of the famous German designer.

The New York Museum celebrates its legendary Spring Gala, which has become the most prestigious fashion event in the United States, attended by all kinds of personalities, artists, athletes, and celebrities in theme-inspired dresses and clothing, which this year will showcase to be the work of Karl Lagerfeld.

Likewise, the foundation will organize an exhibition on the designer, in which he will display around 150 pieces alongside sketches to “highlight the unique working methodology of the designer” of the Chanel fashion house, whose black sunglasses have become one of the hallmarks of his identity.

Lagerfeld, who died at the age of 85, spent most of his life in the French capital, managing the Chanel home for more than 36 years.

As the Met recalls in a statement, “Lagerfeld’s flexible stripes have connected his designs with Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel and his namesake brand, Karl Lagerfeld, creating a diverse and prolific collection unprecedented in fashion history.” “.

Although the Met Gala is held away from the cameras, the main event of the night is the arrival of the celebrities, who vie for the attention of paparazzi and television sets, fueling the curiosity of an international audience hungry for ‘celebrity’.

This year, the theme was the so-called Golden Age of New York, between 1870 and 1891, and 300 famous guests were invited to the occasion by Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

The exclusive event, which raises funds for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of New York, traditionally takes place on the first Monday in May.

At the recent party, Kim Kardashian sparked controversy by appearing on the red carpet in a Marilyn Monroe dress, which ended up leading the International Council of Museums to ban the use of historically valuable clothing on the biggest day of the Met. EFE
