In the early 1980s, Japanese avant-garde designers took Paris by storm, disrupting the world of haute couture with their minimalist deconstructed clothing. But this was not the first time that Japanese design principles had transformed international fashion. Instead as Kimono Refashioned reveals, kimono – its materials, forms, techniques and decorative motifs – has inspired designers for more than 150 years.

Featuring over 35 garments from the Kyoto Costume Institute, dating from 1870 to today, Kimono Refashioned shows us that kimono continue to be a fertile source for contemporary designers, both in Japan and across the globe. Pre-registration is required.
