“KIRE KIRE TEN Contemporary Folk Dress” exhibition in collaboration between discerning designers and textile companies
An exhibition “KIRE / KIRE / TEN – Contemporary Folk Dress” was held at Parco Museum in Ikebukuro PARCO.
In this exhibition, a total of 20 brands participate, from brands already active in mode and fashion to new brands making their debut at the event, and express "contemporary folk dress" in collaboration with textile companies.
The participating designers focused on fabric through a process of selection, development, and processing with cooperation from industrial plants located throughout Japan, adding flavor to them through various techniques including tie dying, needle punching, printing, and weft knitting.
Each designer created their own interpretation of the shared theme of contemporary folk dress for the exhibition.
