How Does the Theme Come About?
Most of the time, exhibits pay tribute to talented designers past. The theme of the Gala informs how people dress. No one paid better tribute to an honored designer than Rihanna, when she wore a luxurious robe by Chinese couturier Guo Pei for the 2015 theme, China: Through the Looking Glass. This year's fashion and religion theme is said to have been chosen since so many designers, like John Galliano and Riccardo Tisci, have referenced religion in their clothing.
