Talk about the Exhibition

KIMONO: Kyoto to Catwalk

A Talk by Curator Anna Jackson

The kimono is an iconic garment. A symbol of Japanese national culture and sensibility it is generally perceived as a traditional, unchanging costume. The recent V&A exhibition Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk, countered that conception, revealing that the kimono has always been a highly dynamic, fashionable garment. It also explored the major impact the kimono has exerted on global dress styles over the last 400 years.

Due to the pandemic, we had to cancel the scheduled visit to the V&A last year. In this talk, Anna Jackson, the curator of the exhibition, will take us on a fascinating journey from the sophisticated culture of 17th century Kyoto to the contemporary catwalk and reveal some of the stories behind the exhibition.

This event is free for OATG members.

Non-members are kindly asked to make a donation (£3 suggestion) via the OATG PayPal account.

The talk will be followed by a discussion, you are welcome to post your questions in the chat during and after the talk.
