Indiana Subchapter: The Influence of Japanese Culture on Fashion Design, Featuring Tokyo Twiggy

Japanese patterns (wagara), which are commonly found on kimono, have intrigued and inspired artists around the world with their beauty and symbolism; so much so that traditional Japanese patterns such as sakura and The Great Wave Off Kanagawa can be found on purses, dresses shirts and more. On Saturday, November 4th at 7 pm EST (6 pm CST), JETAA Chicago will host Indiana-based fashion and textile designer Tokyo Twiggy (a.k.a. Jenn Felts) for an online discussion of the influence of Japanese culture on fashion design!

Tokyo Twiggy spent time in Japan as a student in both high school (Nagaoka, Niigata) and college (Aoyama Gakuin Univeristy in Tokyo), and has also gone for travel. Her love for and appreciation of Japanese culture is apparent in her designs, which incorporate a variety of traditional Japanese geometric, floral and animal patterns. Attend our event to learn about how Tokyo Twiggy's love of Japanese culture and experiences in Japan have served as inspiration for her fashion and textile designs!

Sign up here!

This event is open to alumni and friends/family.
