Exhibition at the Museum of World Culture.

Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk, produced by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, will open at the Museum of World Culture on August 17 2021.

Kimono: Kyoto to catwalk is a rare and rich exhibit with over 300 unique objects, many of which are iconic garments and tell about the importance of kimonos through the ages, both in Japan and in the rest of the world.

The visitor can explore kimonos from the 17th century to today’s new interpretations on the streets of Tokyo, in the fashion industry and on screen.

In Gothenburg, the exhibition will also be supplemented with four kimonos from the collections of the Museums of World Culture.
