Thirty years of Japanese fashion

The recently finished Future Beauty, at the Barbican in London, was the first exhibition in Europe to comprehensively explore avant-garde Japanese fashion, from the early 1980s to the present.

Japanese designers have had a huge impact on world fashion. Visionaries such as Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto redefined the basis of fashion, challenging Western concepts of beauty to transform their garments into art.

The exhibition delved into the correlation between Japanese art, culture, costume history and fashion. Curated by Akiko Fukai, Director of the Kyoto Costume Institute, and designed by architect Sou Fujimoto, the show brought together over 100 garments from the last three decades.
