Met Gala’s ‘Heavenly Bodies’ inspiration for my fashion Illustration
This year the Met Gala celebrities became beautiful works of art, inspired by the opening of the Costume Institutes annual fashion exhibition ‘Heavenly Bodies’ which opens May 10th 2018 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
