240-page catalogue for an exhibition held April 5-June 19, 1994, with text entirely in Japanese. Laid in is a single page announcement illustrated with a colorful kimono. The exhibition, and the illustrations in the catalogue, covers the influence of Japanese art on Western fashion through most of the 20th century, and the examples shown are dazzling. This exhibition prompted others, but remains the touchstone for the study of this subject. Fine in illustrated wraps as issued.
