The Kimono Inspiration: Art and Art-to-Wear in America
By: The Textile Museum, Washington, D.C.
For more than one hundred years, the kimono has been a
motif in American art and popular culture.
The Kimono Inspiration—originally
published as the catalog for the exhibition at the Textile Museum in
Washington, D.C.—explores the use and meaning of the kimono in America and
traces the transformation of this quintessential Japanese garment from its ethnic
origins, through its many appearances in fine art, costume, and high fashion,
to its role in the contemporary Art-to-Wear Movement.
