Spring 2019 Program: The Kimono

On April 10, Junco Sato Pollack and Eri Sato Woo assisted by their friend Shiori-san presented an outstanding program on the art of kimono dress.  Against the backdrop of a gorgeous wedding kimono, Junco-san, Eri-san and Shiori-san showed and described the many steps of kimono dress beginning with the basic undergarments.  Using volunteer models, Eri-san and Junco-san showed different kimono styles, designs and fabrics as well as many different ways of obi tying.

Additionally Eri-san professionally styled the hair for each of the women models.

Shiori-san narrated the historic and cultural perspective for each of the different kimonos presented.

Eri-san and Junco-san also brought many different new, vintage and antique Japanese textiles,  kimonos, obis, undergarments, and accessories which they displayed on tables around the room.

winter program imageCinematic Couture focuses on the art of costume design through the lens of film and popular culture. More than 50 costumes created by the world-renowned London firm, Cosprop Ltd., provide an intimate look at garments and millinery that set the scene, give personality to characters and establish authenticity in period films. The films represented in the exhibition depict five centuries of history, drama, comedy, fairy tale and adventure through period costumes worn in 24 acclaimed films, including “Titanic,” “Sense and Sensibility,” “Out of Africa,” “The Duchess” and “The Danish Girl” as well as award-winning British television series “Pride and Prejudice,” “Downton Abbey” and “Victoria.” This exhibition allows you to get close to the costumes and appreciate the fine details that are often seen only briefly on screen.
