GAP to create original gowns for MET Gala

Apr '10
Furthering its commitment to the arts, Gap is helping support The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Spring 2010 Costume Institute exhibition: American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity (on view May 5 – August 15). As part of the iconic brand's sponsorship, Gap Executive Vice President of Global Design, Patrick Robinson, will co-chair The Costume Institute Benefit on May 3 in New York City.

Inspired by the theme of this year's exhibition, Gap reignited its relationships with current and past CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners–Alexander Wang, Rodarte, Sophie Theallet and Thakoon—to create original gowns for the Gala. The gowns, which will be credited as Alexander Wang for Gap, Rodarte for Gap, Sophie Theallet for Gap, and Thakoon for Gap, will be worn by eight well-known muses who span the fashion, music, film, television and Broadway realms. Alexander Wang will dress M.I.A. and Zoe Kravitz; Thakoon will dress Kerry Washington and Riley Keough; Jessica Alba and Vera Farmiga will don gowns by Sophie Theallet; and Rodarte will dress Kirsten Dunst and Jamie Bochert.

"On behalf of the entire family at Gap, it's a true privilege and honor to be a part of one of the industry's most important exhibitions and events," said Patrick Robinson, Gap's EVP of Global Design. "It's been thrilling to watch some of today's greatest design talent as they prepare to bring to life their interpretation of today's modern American woman for the Met Gala red carpet. We look forward to extending the magic of this extraordinary event off the red carpet through the auction of these unique dresses and our limited edition t-shirt collection."
