We're Not Talking J-Pop Fashion

Have you ever searched Rei Kawakubo's designs and found yourself falling down a Google-image rabbit hole? Do you keep your gold Comme des Garcons button-up — it's the perfect hybrid of menswear and disco queen — in a garment bag? Are you still obsessed with Junya Watanabe’s honeycomb dress from the autumn-winter 2001 “Techno Couture” collection? Just me? Well, if this sounds remotely like you, then you need a seat at the Contemporary Japanese Fashion Symposium at the Crow Collection of Asian Art (2100 Flora St.). This day-long symposium, held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, is in conjunction with the Mary Baskett Collection of Japanese Fashion exhibition, and it will cover a plethora of topics; you’ll leave knowing more than you ever thought possible about avant-garde Japanese fashion. Tickets are $40 for the public; $20 for friends of the Crow Collection. More at crowcollection.org
Sat., Jan. 31, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2015
