Kyoto to Catwalk

The Victoria & Albert Museum's latest exhibition Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk focuses on the Kimono as a dynamic evolving icon of fashion.  The Kimono was created in the 17th Century Japan when the growing Japanese merchant class had a desire for luxury.  The Kimono has been a strong influence in fashion since then.  

The exhibition starts on February 29th, 2020 and focuses "to show it as something dynamic".  Which has a strong effect on both fashion and film.  The beauty of the Kimono is the body becomes irrelevant.  It highlights a woman's shoulder which is a radical idea in womenswear, as it is not a restrictive garment.  

This is definitely an exhibition I would love to visit, as we love making Kimono shaped garments.
