“Paintings Visible in Clothing” is being hosted at the KH Gallery Ginza. Hiroko Koshino has had an amazing 60-year career as a fashion designer and she still currently announces 2 collections a year which continue to share beauty ahead of its generation. She has also tirelessly been releasing works of art in recent years creating a unique world combing fashion and art. This exhibition displays clothing works from past collections in three categories of “quality, shape and color” which have been re-defined from the design elements of paintings. Her fashion is captured in a new manner from an artistic perspective. The series with clothing works enclosed in flat and clear acrylic cases allows guests to view in detail this “quality” including different materials for each work of art, handmade decorations and the picturesque structure. Meanwhile, the optical installation features infinite “shapes” which can be imagined from one dress. You can also take in “colors” in KH gallery’s first exhibition of colorful giclée style paintings which sparkle in their own small worlds.
Discovering “works of art” from past clothing could be another step forward in the fusion between fashion and art. Enjoy this unprecedented experience which transcends human form and expands your world of senses.
