As the world of fashion has evolved, photography has played a pivotal part in conveying the appeal of garments by fashion designers. The 1990s saw the emergence of photographers who went beyond the conventional framework for communicating the appeal of fashion items to create images that appeal to people. Moreover, fashion magazines appeared that took an independent stance in transmitting information. Images created from new points of view influenced people’s thinking and lifestyles. Those images have been referred to repeatedly by subsequent generations.
For this exhibition, we have welcomed as its supervisor Nakako Hayashi, who has observed the worlds of fashion and the arts as a long-term editor of the culture magazine Hanatsubaki published by Shiseido. Through works by artists in Japan and abroad, the exhibition attempts to explore the relationship between photography and fashion. It displays, in addition to photographs, rare fashion magazines that became major turning points in their time and is accompanied by related events, for an engaging look at photography and fashion from many angles.
