"The Mary Baskett Collection of Japanese Fashion"

On display are more than 20 garments and accessories by top Japanese designers including Issey Miyake,Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo. Informed in part by Japanese traditions such as the kimono, the art of origami and traditional textile dyeing techniques, these designers produce radical garments with shapes and textures often incongruous with the natural contours of the human body as perceived by Western cultures. In the 1980s, their designs effectively overthrew existing norms and set the stage for the postmodernist movement in the fashion industry.
