Just in time for The Met’s 150th anniversary, The Costume Institute’s upcoming fashion exhibit, About Time: Fashion and Duration, debuts on Oct. 29 after the museum reopened in August. (The coinciding Met Gala will not take place this year.) Taking a look at fashion’s past, present and future, the presentation maps out the cyclical nature of clothing. The collection spans from the 1870s until the present day with Virginia Woolf as the ghost narrator with quotes of her works related to time, including Mrs. Dalloway, Night and Day and Orlando: A Biography serving as accompaniment. Some of the major designers consist of Alexander McQueen, Comme des Garçons, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Dior.
