Now the whole world is linked by information, the fashion's presence has changed. Is the trend of fashion going towards modern art responding to the times rather than just "wearing," using the body as canvas, covering, pulling it over or trying it on.... In this exhibition, up- and- coming gifted creators tackling new ways of expression, whom HANAE MORI FOUNDATION has provided with support and expertise, exhibit their creation by hand. "create, " "put on," "wear," "put over," "draw," "illuminate," "weave," etc.
Their works are environment- friendly, and will show you a picture of the future. "Let's go Fashion!"

This exhibition is the 20th Anniversary of Art Tower Mito, 120th Anniversary of Modern Mito City and 400th Anniversary of the Mito Domain memory business.
