Clothes define people: A fashion history of the 20th century “An inspirational sourcebook for designers and enthusiasts alike.”
–i-D Magazine, London
A person’s clothing, whether it’s a sari, kimono, or business suit, is an essential key to his or her culture, class, personality, or even religion. The Kyoto Costume Institute recognizes the importance of understanding clothing sociologically, historically, and artistically. Founded in 1978, the KCI holds one of the world’s most extensive clothing collections and has curated many exhibitions worldwide. With an emphasis on Western women’s clothing, the KCI has amassed a wide range of 20th century historical garments, underwear, shoes, and fashion accessories.
Showcasing a vast selection from the Institute’s archives of skilled photographs depicting the clothing expertly displayed and arranged on custom-made mannequins, Fashion is a fascinating excursion through a century of clothing trends. The KCI believes that "clothing is an essential manifestation of our very being", and their passion and dedication positively radiate from every page of this book.
