It’s the first Monday in May, which means it’s time for the Met Gala.

This year's theme according to Faza Fashion 'Tonight the #MetGala is inspired by philosopher Susan Sontag's 1964 essay 'Notes on Camp' which is a listing of 58 qualities that define the concept of camp as 'love of the unnatural: of the artifice & exaggeration' and reject not just the conventional aesthetic tastes, but the restrictive ideas behind them too. Camp is about individuals who have been willing - through fashion or mannerism- to step outside the boundaries of what society expects. The concept of camp might be easy to misinterpret & very hard to pull off but expect to see extremely over-the-top red carpet this year.'

The Met Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit.

The concept of camp might be easy to misinterpret & very hard to pull off but expect to see extremely over-the-top red carpet this year. المت غالا (حفلة متحف المتـروبوليتن) هي حفلة سنوية لجمع تبرعات لمتحف المتروبوليتن في نيويورك وكل سنة يفتتحوا معرض في المتحف يكون له ثيم معين أو موضوع معين السنة موضوع المت غالا مستوحى من مقالة لفيلسوفة امريكية اسمها سوزن سونتاغ كتبتها عام 1964.. المقالة عبارة عن شرحها لمفهوم 'camp'.. المفهوم اللي قد يصعب شرحه او تنفيذه ولكن في مقالتها ذكرت ثمانية و أربعين صفة تساعد في شرح المفهوم اللي قامت بتعريفه انه حب الشي المتكلف/ الغير معتاد/المصطنع/ المبالغ فيه واللي يرفض قوانين المجتمع أو الذوق العام لأنها تقوم بتقييده لأسباب قد تكون غير منطقية او محدودة التفكير وطبعا الفاشن/التصميم هو احد وسائل التعبير عن رؤية المصمم وشخصية اي شخص يلبس التصميم فلذلك موضوع الحفلة الليلة هو عن تأثير هذا المفهوم على الفاشن وكيف طبقه المصممين في تصاميمهم.
