To celebrate the show’s opening, The Costume Institute Benefit—popularly known as the Met Gala—will take place on May 1, 2023. It will celebrate the German creative director’s contribution to fashion.

Meanwhile, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” will be available for viewing from May 5 to July 16 next year.

The Met Gala provides The Costume Institute with its primary source of annual funding for exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, operations, and capital improvements.

“Karl Lagerfeld was one of the most captivating, prolific, and recognizable forces in fashion and culture. Known as much for his extraordinary designs and tireless creative output as for his legendary persona. This immersive exhibition will unpack his singular artistic practice, inviting the public to experience an essential part of Lagerfeld’s boundless imagination and passion for innovation,” The Met director Max Hollein said.
