We are excited to announce that on June 28th, we will be hosting 2 guest lecture and presentations at the prestigious Cincinnati Art Museum in conjunction to the upcoming new exhibit Kimono: Refashioning Contemporary Style. At 7pm and then later at 9pm we will be discussing the fundamentals of wearing Japanese kimono, and debunking many misconceptions about Japanese kimono. This is a perfect chance to learn about Japanese kimono in person, and everyone is encouraged to attend while wearing their own kimono in a culturally respectful manner. So please come out and join us for an evening, and be certain to stop by and support this wonderful exhibit and renown Art Museum.

About the special exhibition Kimono: Refashioning Contemporary Style On view June 28–September 15, 2019 This exhibition celebrates the enduring influence of the kimono on fashion. Inspired by materials, forms and decorative motifs since the opening of Japan in the mid-nineteenth century, western fashion designers, alongside other artists, have produced works that acknowledge a Japanese persuasion. Organized in partnership with the Kyoto Costume Institute and Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, this exhibition displays Japanese kimono side by side with western fashionable garments from the 1870s to today. Featured designers include Gabrielle Chanel, John Galliano, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Iris van Herpen, Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo—plus over a dozen examples from CAM’s permanent collection.
