Reimaginging the Kimono, May 1- June 26, 2017, NorthPark Center, Dallas
Reimagining the Kimono, organized by the UNT Texas Fashion Collection, explores the ways in which the kimono has inspired designers through its form, fabric, and floral motifs. Late twentieth-century Japanese wedding kimonos, known as uchikake, represent the traditional garment with a bold use of color and pattern. Selections of silk chiffon haute couture gowns by Hanae Mori offer modern interpretations of Japanese iconography and the iconic form of the kimono. Historic designs by Oscar de la Renta, Pauline Trigere, and Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe, among others, offer high-fashion examples of the multiplicity of ways in which the kimono has inspired American and European designers.
