Event: Urban Chic – Fashionable Dress in the Edo Period

Urban Chic - Fashionable Dress from the Edo Period

Event date: 10 July 2014, 1.30–2.30pm

In the sophisticated urban centres of Japan in the Edo period (1603–1868) fashion was an important indicator of wealth, taste and aesthetic sensibility. In this talk (to be held at the British Museum), Anna Jackson, Keeper of the Asian Department, Victoria and Albert Museum, will explore the style, decoration and social significance of the luxury garments created at this time and reveal how the kimono developed into a highly expressive means of personal display.
