On Friday, September 21st, come join us for a delightful evening of fine Japanese teas, tasty mochi, and a complimentary screening of the film Picture Bride at our first-ever Tea, Mochi,and Brides-To-Be. With an introduction by Cultural Collections Manager Betty Kam, you’ll come to better understand the historical importance of Hawai‘i’s plantation-era years and its impact on island fashion, and to also highlight the relevance of our new traveling exhibition, Textured Lives: Japanese Immigrant Clothing from the Plantations of Hawai‘i. Featuring the clothing collection of noted author and scholar Barbara F. Kawakami, you’ll be transported to another era when textiles, traditional Japanese kimono prints, and the harsh working conditions of plantation life commingled to create a breathtaking style that is the epitome of Japanese-influenced contemporary island fashion.
