Attention all Fashionistas! Tonight the Textile Museum will be hosting one of their renown talks called Issey Miyake‘s Design Principles.  Miyake is a well-known Japanese fashion designer who is known for his technology-driven creations. Tonight’s lecture will be given by Amanda Mayer Stinchecum, a historian specializing in the “cloth and clothing of Ryukyu/Okinawa and mainland Japan”.

Just a lil’ fact for fun: The building which houses the Textile Museum was created by the famous-architect John Russell Pope in 1913.

The Textile Museum is located at 2320 S Street NW DC and tonight’s talk starts at 6 PM. Purchase tickets at 202.667.0441.
