Though still many months away,  the intersection of “fashion and religion” will be the controversial theme of The Met’s 2018 Costume Institute’s main exhibition, sources tell WWD.

Multiple European designers, including Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano and Riccardo Tisci, are just a few who have reportedly incorporated religion into their collections. Dolce & Gabbana has used the likeness of Madonna, WWD reports, while Jeremy Scott has showcased the iconography of Jesus in his work.

Howver, no Met officials have yet confirmed the news.
