The head fashion curator of MET Museum Andrew Bolton will star in the episode of ‘Art of Style’ to be premiered on IMG’s M2M on May 2, 2018.

As the head curator of the MET Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, Andrew Bolton has curated some of the most monumental fashion exhibitions in recent memory, including 2011’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty,” 2015’s “China: Through the Looking Glass,” and the upcoming “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” which opens on May 10.

Hollywood Reporter quotes, “Bolton is being given the documentary treatment on the next episode of Art of Style, the original fashion series on IMG's M2M (Made to Measure) digital network.”

The episode is scheduled to be aired on May 2, in advance of the star-studded Met Gala on May 7, which will reveal details about the religious-themed fashion exhibition, as well as detail some of Bolton’s own backstory. A native Brit, Bolton came to the Met from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and is the romantic partner of American fashion designer Thom Browne.

The episode is directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, who helmed the film “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel” and directed previous episodes of the series about designers Manolo Blahnik, Iris Van Herpen, and more.

‘Art of Style’ is in its second season. M2M recently won two 2018 Webby Awards (Best Fashion and Beauty App and Best Art Direction for the original series Slender Bodies), reports Hollywood Reporter.
