The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that it will rename its famed Costume Institute for Anna Wintour, the Editor in Chief of ‘Vogue’ and Conde Nast’s Artistic Director. Wintour has been a trustee of the museum since 1999 and has raised approximately $125 million for the Costume Institute alone. In addition, she helped collect enough funds to facilitate the Institute’s two-year renovation, which cost approximately $40 million.

The Anna Wintour Costume Center will open on May 8 and will include a renovated 4,200-square-foot main gallery, an updated costume conservation lab, and expanded study and storage facilities.
