Fashion: The Collection of the Kyoto Costume Institute. A History from the 18th to the 20th Century
Central GT580 F7394 2002
More than ten thousand clothing items are held in the collection of the Kyoto Costume Institute, collected under a charter issued by the Japanese Government Agency for Cultural Affairs in 1978. The Institute sees clothing as ‘an expression of human feelings, of culture and industry, and change’. Among the collection are these Thierry Mugler designs from the 1980s and 1990s. Mugler is a French designer known for his 1980s ‘power fashions’. The shapely colourful jackets certainly have impact.
