Kimono: Kyoto to CatwalkCatwalk designs by Yves Saint Laurent, Star Wars costumes and a Jean Paul Gaultier designed kimono created for Madonna go on display at the V&A in 2020 as part of Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk - the first major exhibition on the kimono in Europe. Exploring the kimono as a dynamic and evolving icon of fashion in both Japan and the rest of the world, the exhibition will also display a broad range of artworks alongside the kimonos to reveal the sartorial, aesthetics and social significance of the garment from the 1660s to the present day. Further highlights include costumes from the Oscar-winning Memoirs of a Geisha and a couture gown designed by John Galliano for Christian Dior.
