MET GALA 2019 – CAMP LIVES!

It was another banner year for the Met Gala, fashion and fundraising’s True Fashionista hour. The theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion” was on display in full force. Quick review of the meaning, which in case you’re even questioning, is not a summer flashback to canoeing on a lake and popsicle stick arts ‘n crafts projects: Camp in this context refers to a term coined in a groundbreaking 1964 Susan Sontag essay, “Notes on Camp”,  where she argued how the love of the unnatural, displayed via artifice and exaggeration, can be summed up in that one word.
