This year’s MET Gala Costume Institute chose CAMP as their theme and is referenced by Susan Sontag’s “Notes on Camp,” first published in 1964. “Camp is a certain mode of aestheticism. It is one way of seeing the world as an aesthetic phenomenon. That way, the way of Camp, is not in terms of beauty, but in terms of the degree of artifice, of stylization.” And as VOGUE summarizes, “In a nutshell, camp is an elusive and playful and knowing sensibility, one that doesn’t take itself too seriously.” It seemed only appropriate that Michael Angelo, founder of Wonderland Beauty Parlor create an experience around this theme.
Michael is known for his playful editorial work and his collection of the world’s first scratch-n-sniff wall coverings for Flavor Paper, called “The Fruit Cocktail Collection,” benefiting the Human Rights Campaign and is included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
“Camp is the glittering pathway that led me to where my heart is truly its happiest. The intersection of glamour, beauty, wit, intelligence and drama. Join me for a stroll down that rainbow road, starting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and ending with an afternoon of glamour under the Highline at my Wonderland Beauty Parlor 💖🦋⭐️.”- Michael Angelo
