NorthPark Center says
Reimagining the Kimono presented by the UNT Texas Fashion Collection
Level One between Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s | May 1 – June 27

This special exhibition explores the ways in which the kimono has inspired designers through its form, fabric, and floral motifs. Late 20th century Japanese wedding kimonos, known as uchikake, represent the traditional garment with a bold use of color and pattern. Created by the first and only Asian couturier in the history of French haute couture, selections of silk chiffon gowns by Hanae Mori offer modern interpretations of Japanese iconography and the iconic form of the kimono. Historic designs by Oscar de la Renta, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Pauline Trigere, and Karl Lagerfeld for Chloé, among others, offer high-fashion examples of the multiple ways in which the kimono has inspired American and European designers.

The Texas Fashion Collection is a unique repository documenting high fashion and style. Operating under the auspices of the College of Visual Arts and Design, the collection is one of the most acclaimed educational resources at the University of North Texas in Denton.
