As WWD reports, ‘Fashion and Religion’ will be the focus of next year’s exhibit and gala, according to multiple sources. The museum has not officially confirmed the news yet, but the idea for the project reportedly came about well before the current exhibit, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: The Art of the In-Between” opened.

Many designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Jeremy Scott have referenced religion in their collections over the years, which means there’s a vast array of religious-inspired looks to potentially be curated.

According to WWD‘s sources, the exhibition is still in the early stages of planning, but it will be a “serious and ambitious” project. This means the Met Gala red carpet will follow suit, which should prove interesting for the tricky, potentially controversial theme.
