GOMA’s big summer show for 2014-2015 opened on 1 November and we were there to enjoy all the fun of the opening weekend.
‘Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion’ is a look back over the innovations, ingenuity and sheer craziness that can be Japanese fashion. The exhibition comes from the prestigious Kyoto Costume Institute and features pieces by Yoshi Yamamoto, Junta Wanatabi and Commes des Garcons.
The opening night party was on Friday evening and was the only time for the length of the exhibition that photographs could be taken of the garments. So I took no photos of the fashion-pack enjoying the party, but a lot of the incredible artwork. In a couple of weeks you’ll be able to view – but not photograph – the exhibition after-hours at Friday nights Up Late at GOMA. The program opens with Broken Doll on November 21 and we’re hoping to catch the show.
Future Fashion Sundays
For four Sundays between now and February, GOMA is hosting a set of public programs all based around fashion. There are talks, tours, illustration workshops and a fabric and garment swap. I took along a few things to swap and stuck around to enjoy a beautiful Sunday in Brisbane.
