The annual May Met Gala brings together many bright stars in fashion for a highly curated annual affair at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. The space for youth fandom (physically) at the Met Gala is swiftly becoming a big part of the spectacle on the steps leading into the iconic location. Last year, there was a lot of spice around fake seating charts, with a group of Gen Z icons (Amanda Gormon, Naomi Osaka, Timothy Chalamet and Billie Eilish) co-chairing the event. We’re watching this evolution in culture closely, with leaders in fashion shifting from established editors to young creators inspiring trends. This year was hotly anticipated post-COVID and was a full-on gilded affair with plenty of youth culture insights. For 52INSIGHTS this week, we’re sharing our hot takes from the Met Gala and what that means for brands.
