According to Vogue, the 2021 Costume Institute exhibit will combine with the one for 2022, thus creating a two-part fashion display. The theme for the 24-month show? American fashion. Opening on September 18, 2021, the first half of the exhibition, titled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” will be held in Anna Wintour’s Costume Center and focus on fashion’s ability to tell stories through time. According to Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute’s curator, the Costume Center will be transformed into an “imaginary house” for the exhibit, which will run until September 5, 2022.
