Fashion in Japan 1945-2020
Jun 3 - Aug 24
“Fashion in Japan 1945-2020” at the National Art Center Tokyo follows the unique trajectory of Japanese clothing, especially in post-World War Ⅱ Japan. This will be seen from both sides: that of designers who transmit culture by creating clothes and ideas, and that of users who receive it by wearing the clothes and at times create era-defining grassroots fashion movements. It offers a comprehensive overview that references the predominant media of each era, such as newspapers, magazines, and advertisements. This is the world’s first large-scale exhibition to unravel the varied threads of modern Japanese fashion history, from the dawn of Western-style fashion in Japan to the latest avant-garde trends, while providing social and historical context.
