Mikki Brown, co-owner of theBrowns, in Williamstown, and former vice president of Issey Miyake North America, will host a fashion show of innovative textile and clothing designs inspired by contemporary Japanese fashions on Friday, September 26, at 6 pm, at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Admission is free. A cash bar and reception with the local models following the show will allow for a closer examination of the intricate fabrics and styles influenced by Japanese design.

Exploring the themes of transparency, sculpture, anime, street clothes, traditional kimono florals, stark minimalism, texture, and dimension, will be women's looks consisting of pieces from Nuno, Issey Miyake, Veronique Branquinho, Martin Margiela, Hanae Mori, Junya Watanabe, and Comme des Garçons. The clothing has been assembled from private collections and theBrowns. Jewelry borrowed from the Sienna Gallery in Lenox will top off the ensembles.

Stone Hill Center, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect Tadao Ando, opened this summer at the Clark. In addition to the fashion show, fall public programs include an anime film series and a lecture exploring Japanese popular culture.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August).
