Fashion Forward: Edo Beauties of the Floating World

Mon – Fri., 11 am – 5 pm, through October 15th by appointment

Inspired by the concurrent museum exhibitions, Dressed by Nature: Textiles of Japan at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and Kimono Style: The John C. Weber Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, our September 2022 Asia Week show will explore the swagger and finesse of kimono styles from the 19th century as presented by woodblock print artists, who themselves could be considered the tastemakers and fashion editors of their time.
