The Metropolitan Museum of Art produces In America: An Anthology of Fashion, launches as the second of the two-part series which celebrates American fashion. The exhibit addresses issues of social justice, identity, and diversity through its curation that’s meant to “illustrate the shifting tides of American fashion”.
Lamb Design Studio’s Shane Valentino was commissioned to create an installation in the MET’s Great Hall which was inspired by the vision of artist Simone Leigh. Lamb focused on creating a design that captured the qualities of the American spirit during the 19th century. The towering, golden rendition of the Statue of Liberty’s flame of enlightenment greeted guests to the Met Gala.
Shane collaborated with Vogue as well as the curator Andrew Bolton and the MET to exhibit the second part of the Costume Institute Survey of American Fashion.
The MET recruited nine directors the task of transforming 13 period rooms of the American wing of the museum into different settings that embodied the development of American fashion in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the emergence of an American style, and the rise of the name designer. Lamb Design Studio collaborated with the vision of each director in order to bring it to life, collaborating with Sofia Coppola, Radha Blank, Janicza Bravo, Autumn de Wilde, Julie Dash, Tom Ford, Regina King, Martin Scorsese, and Chloé Zhao. Each room beings a new and unique experience.
