How did you choose the clothes you are wearing today?
Uniforms, suits, jeans, T-shirts, tracksuits, dresses, trench coats…. In some cases, we choose our clothing because of the way we feel. In other cases, we decide based on what we are going to do or who we are going to meet. After all, as with cosplay, there are times when people want to transform themselves into a different person.
On the other hand, fashion is not merely an act of wearing clothing – it is also an act of seeing and being seen. Every culture, society, and group has its own codes. This gives rise to a kind of communication between ourselves and others that resembles a game. Due to the spread of the Internet and social networking, anyone can freely transmit images of their own attire, leading to a new phase in the way in which we engage with fashion. In addition to fashion and art, this exhibition focuses on clothing styles depicted in movies and manga, encouraging viewers to reexamine the latest dress codes in contemporary society and apparel practices (or games).
