This year, the theme was ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’, which was inspired by ‘Notes On Camp’ based on an essay written in 1964 by American author Susan Sontag. It begins by defining the term as “its love of the unnatural, of artifice and exaggeration.” And the term is not related to beauty, but with the degree of stylisation and artifice.
“Whether it’s pop camp, queer camp, high camp or political camp, I think it’s very timely. Much of high camp is a reaction to something,” the Costume Institute’s head curator Andrew Bolton had said at a press event. “Camp is by nature subversive... confronting and challenging the status quo. We’re experiencing a resurgence of camp — not just in fashion, but in culture in general,” said Andrew, adding, “Camp tends to come to the fore in moments of social and political instability. The 1960s was one such moment, as were the 1980s.”
