Kimono Fashion in the Meiji Era

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

During the rapid importation of Western culture into Japan during the Meiji era, one part of it's influence is often overlooked: its clothing. Join us for a journey through the earliest years of modern Japan and see how fashion played a role in everyday life as well as the greater cultural context in which it functioned. We'll then shine the spotlight on kimono and see how the Meiji era makes them into what we know them as today. There will also be two kimono wearing demonstrations of popular Meiji fashions, so come and volunteer!
