China Through The Looking Glass, Inspiration
Courtesy of Patternbank
May 2015 New York’s Metropolitan Museum launched its latest exhibition ‘China Through The Looking Glass.’ Organised by The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Department of Asian Art, the exhibition explores the influence of Chinese arts and aesthetics on western fashion, and its historical references throughout film, art and design. The exhibition is on until August 16th. It is sure to inspire. Thanks to Patternbank for a visually compelling report, as always.
