Miniskirts Arrive in Japan!
From Wednesday, April 10
to Wednesday, July 31, 2024

‘Y2K’ has recently gained popularity, representing a fashion trend among young people that embodies  the ‘Year 2000’ aesthetic through the incorporation of 2000s fashion trends. Key elements such as crop tops, platform shoes, arm covers, and loose socks define the Heisei era fashion, with the ‘miniskirt’ standing out as perhaps the most iconic piece. While miniskirts experienced a resurgence in popularity during the Heisei and Reiwa eras, their first appearance in the fashion world dates back to the 1960s. Born from the street fashion of London, far removed from Parisian haute couture, this style became hugely popular worldwide. By the late 1960s, the miniskirt sensation had fervently spread throughout Japan, becoming a phenomenon among women. This exhibition features miniskirts produced by the Dressmaker Women’s Academy during the peak of the trend, along with an overview of the miniskirt’s arrival in Japan.
