"East Meets West: A Collectors' Choice"
19th and 20th Century Kimono, Obi, and More

This exceptional exhibition tells the story of the Japanese Kimono tradition from the very insular Japanese culture to its integration with the West during the mid-19th and early 20th centuries.

This rare display of exquisite works of art in textiles will include both Samurai and Japanese Kimono whose workmanship, detail, and design will never be replicated.
