The theme for the next year's fashion extravaganza is 'Camp: Notes on Fashion', inspired by Susan Sontag's legendary 1964 essay "Notes on Camp", reported The New York Times.
According to Sontag, camp is "a love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration."
"Camp really means the unique ability of combining high art and pop culture; it is not kitsch. The Met exhibition will give contemporary significance to Sontag's perspective," Alessandro Michelle, creative director of Gucci, told NYT.
The annual event will be held on May 6 at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art while an exhibition going by the same name will be held May 9 through September 8, 2019.
Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace were the co-chairs at last year's gala.
