Where the runway meets the street

Upcoming at the Barbican Art Gallery, Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion will be the first ever European survey of avant-garde Japanese garments. Drawing from the 1980s to the present (and pulling names like Junya Watanabe and Yohji Yamamoto), the exhibition explores the unique sensibilities and notions of beauty embedded in Japanese design.

Curated by Akiko Fukai, renowned historian of Japanese fashion and Director of the Kyoto Costume Institute.

Future Beauty opens on October 15, 2010, and runs to February 6, 2011.
