Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion at Barbican Art Gallery – London

Location: Barbican Art Gallery
Dates: 15 October 2010 – 6 February 2011
Open daily 11am-8pm (Tue and Wed until 6pm-Thu until 10pm)

Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion is the first exhibition in Europe to comprehensively survey avant-garde Japanese fashion, from the early 1980s to the present. Curated by the eminent Japanese fashion historian Akiko Fukai, Director of the Kyoto Costume Institute, the exhibition explores the unique sensibility of Japanese design, and its sense of beauty embodied in clothing.
Japanese fashion made an enormous impact on the world fashion scene in the late 20th century and designers such as Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto redefined the very basis of fashion. Their works will be shown alongside Kawakubo’s protégé, the techno-couturier Junya Watanabe, together with the acclaimed Jun Takahashi, and the new generation of radical designers including Tao Kurihara, Fumito Ganryu, Matohu, Akira Naka, Mina Perhonen and Mintdesigns. This autumn, the Barbican hosts a season of events exploring the unique culture of Japan, including Shun-kin in Barbican Theatre and Aspects of Japanese Cinema in Barbican Cinema.
The exhibition is co-organised by Barbican Art Gallery and the Kyoto Costume Institute
Exhibition supported by Wacoal Corp.
