Papal robes and accessories from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside The Vatican, were on view in the Anna Wintour Costume Center. Fashions from the early twentieth century to the present were shown in the Byzantine and medieval galleries of the Robert Lehman Wing, and at The Met Cloisters. The exhibition attracted over 1.65 million visitors and broke the previous record achieved by Treasures of Tutankhamun in 1978.

FRANK Showcase Systems, working through our American distributor, Gaylord.

Archival, collaborated with the Met team and New Project LLC to provide a mix of glass and acrylic museum display cases to exhibit a variety of sacred garments, vestments, and fashion. A multi-panel custom showcase incorporating the architectural columns of a medieval cloister and mannequins in religious habit-inspired fashions highlights the creative possibilities inherent in the FRANK System.
