Façon Favourites: The #MetGalaChallenge
This year’s Met Gala was scheduled for Monday May 4 th (the first Monday of May) yet,
due to the coronavirus, the event has been postponed to a later date.
The theme for the 2020 gala was ‘About Time: Fashion and Duration’ which museum
curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Andrew Bolton, describes as “reimagining the
fashion history that’s fragmented, discontinuous, and heterogeneous”.
In honour of this major event in the fashion calendar, Vogue and ‘Pose’ star, Billy Porter,
hosted the #MetGalaChallenge online where people recreated iconic outfits of Met Galas
passed. Floods of people took to Instagram and Twitter to share their creations which the
team at Façon couldn’t help but admire.
Here are some of Façon’s favourites:
