Idea of theme to honor Karl Lagerfeld at Meta Gala

According to Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue America and honorary co-chair of the show, the concept came to be when Lagerfeld passed away in 2019. Karl Lagerfeld could have felt a little uneasy if his clothing had been on show at a gallery, according to Anna Wintour. She continued, describing him as a wise merchant monarch who enjoyed reading.
