Project Description: 

The Costume Institute's spring 2018 exhibition, ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the MET Cloisters features a dialogue between fashion and medieval art from The Met collection examining fashion's ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.

Curated by Andrew Bolton, the exhibition features many Stephen Jones creations with his designer collaborations from Thierry Mugler to Dior inspired by the millinery in the Catholic Religion.
