Fashion, at its best, is art in motion. The body becomes a canvas, the garment transforming into a gallery-worthy work of art that makes you feel something. This sensation is on full display in the Japanese galleries at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, where one of its newest exhibits, Kimono Style, traces the layered legacy of the kimono.

Now through February 20, 2023, visitors can view selected works from the John C. Weber Collection of Japanese art ranging from the 17th to the 20th centuries, which aim to explore how the kimono evolved not only in Japan, but across the world, leaving a particularly indelible mark on Western fashion.
