“Camp is a vision of the world in terms of style – – but a particular kind of style. It is the love of the exaggerated, the “off,” of things-being-what-they-are-not.”
– Susan Sontag, “Notes on Camp”, 1964
“Camp: Notes on Fashion” is the MET Costume Institute’s annual exhibit, which kicked off last month with the star studded MET Gala. The show highlights over 250 objects, artworks, accessories, outfits and more that examine the intentionally exaggerated, flamboyant, and extravagant spirit of camp. There are so many varying opinions on what it means to be campy and this exhibit is a perfect place to explore numerous style interpretations. The colorful fashion eye candy and swoon-worthy, over-the-top runway looks had us smiling, laughing and begging for more. Definitely recommend!
