To give those on the invite-only guest list time to prepare for the May fundraiser, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute has just announced the theme for the 2020 event and exhibit: "About Time: Fashion and Duration".

The 2020 exhibition, as revealed this morning, is titled About Time: Fashion and Duration and promises to present "a disruptive timeline of fashion history", encompassing over a century and a half of fashion - from 1870 to the present day. The catalogue will include a new short story by Michael Cunningham, victor of the Pulitzer Prize for his novel, "The Hours", which was inspired by Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway".

Following on from this year, which took inspiration from Susan Sontag's Notes on Camp, next years event will look to another literary heavyweight, Virginia Woolf, and her seminal time-travelling novel Orlando. For 2020 we will see the NY museum showcase a century and a half of fashion history from its extensive archive, presenting it along a disruptive timeline. For example, a black silk faille princess-line dress from the late 1870s will be paired with an Alexander McQueen "Bumster" skirt from 1995.
