Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion
SEATTLE , WASHINGTON  •  Seattle Art Museum  •  Ongoing

Curated by Akiko Fukai, director of the Kyoto Fashion Institute, the exhibition Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion showcases the early emphasis on light and shadow, and the increasingly diverse, innovative designs that range from the deconstruction and reinvention of Western couture models to brightly colored designs that are inspired by contemporary street fashion.

With eighty gowns, ranging from classic and elegant to outrageous—created by celebrated designers Issey Miyake, Kenzo Takada, Rei Kawakubu, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Jun Takahashi and others—videos of runway shows, artist photographs, magazines, and ephemera designed by renowned international artists such as Gilbert & George and Cindy Sherman, an exhilarating experience awaits viewers of this extraordinary exhibition.
