The annual event (held in May) is to benefit the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (which I understand to be the main source of funding for the institute).  They often have various themes.  That year:  https://www.vogue.com/article/met-gala-2017-theme-rei-kawakubo-comme-des-garcons
