Met Gala “Camp” in Interior Design

The Met Gala is one of the most important and iconic annual events in the fashion industry. Every year on the first Monday of May the MET hosts a lavish fundraiser filled with celebrities dressed in absolutely crazy yet gorgeous looks. There’s a different theme each year to guide the attendees, and some of the most important celebrities and fashion designers collaborate for their looks. This year the theme was “Camp” based off an essay written by Susan Sontag. She says it’s “something of a private code, a badge of identity.” Bolton said, “Camp is a site of debate rather than consensus.” Basically the definition of it is something so outrageous and stunning that it’s completely original and doesn’t take anything too seriously. So basically every Met gala theme is “campy” and almost every red carpet is too.

Favorite Looks from the MET

Saoirse Ronan in Gucci

As you can see, these looks are completely out of this world. Bringing bright colors, graphic prints, and varieties of materials and textures. So now that we’ve explained a little bit of the event and the complex theme this year, let’s jump into our idea of camp in reference to furniture and accessories. We did our best to find furniture that exemplifies this theme. And while majority of these pieces are not for the common person, they are FUN and ORIGINAL = the goal of achieving CAMP.
