Andrew Bolton, the curator of the institute, told Vogue in April that American fashion is “undergoing a Renaissance” and should be honored.

“The emphasis on conscious creativity was really consolidated during the pandemic and the social justice movements,” Bolton told Vogue. “And I’ve been really impressed by American designers’ responses to the social and political climate, particularly around issues of body inclusivity and gender fluidity, and I’m just finding their work very, very self-reflective.”
