Art Deco Japan

Art Deco Japan is a current fashion and material culture exhibit at Hillwood Estate in Washington, DC.
The Exhibit is in two outbuildings of the estate and has some very interesting clothing and household items from the 1920s and 1940s that mix Japanese styling with the geometric lines and modern styling of Art Deco.
The contemporary era illustrations in the exhibit show a mixture of western and traditional attire with women wearing kimono and dresses with bob and waves haircut.
