The Elegant Other: Cross-cultural Encounters in Fashion and Art

As the Meiji period dawned, previous gateways to the world – Yokohama, Nagasaki and Kobe – became increasingly important as influences from the West poured in, affecting people’s lifestyles and the clothes they wore. Simultaneously, Japanese aesthetics were adopted abroad and a fusion of Western and Japanese fashion was born. Delight in the fearless exploration of 19th century fashion-forward cross-cultural clothing at this stunning exhibit of more than 100 dresses and accessories, courtesy of the Kyoto Costume Institute.
