KH Gallery Ginza will hold the exhibition entitled “小篠弘子 × HIROKO KOSHINO – Cycle of Art and Design –”. The career of the fashion designer Hiroko Koshino started when the 18-year-old Hiroko Koshino entered the world of design while dreaming of becoming a painter. Since she found the commonality between fashion drawings and paintings, she worked at the forefront of the fashion industry as a designer. This exhibition will shed light on some of her fashion creations, selected from her huge collection, and present the close connection between art and design.
Clothes made with the original design textile, paintings that feature the collage of that textile, clothes with prints of these paintings... Such process of developing creations in different forms will be presented in installations using large frames. The exhibition will also display digital-made textiles that reproduced Koshino’s hand-drawn paintings, as well as rare clothes that she directly painted. Giclée fashion drawings, the starting point of clothes making, will be sold too.
Plane and solid, static and dynamic, analog and digital—please enjoy the endless cycle of art and design that connects different elements and continues to expand without limit.

KH Gallery Ginza will hold an exhibition entitled “Special Exhibition: Hiroko Koshino—Homage to Junichi Nakahara”.
Junichi Nakahara worked on magazine covers and illustrations since 1930s and was known for his drawings of women with big eyes and sophisticated fashion. In the changing post-war times, he published magazines and style books and attracted the attention of many women with his diverse talents in illustrations, editing and design. Hiroko Koshino was also inspired greatly by his works in her impressionable years.
This exhibition will feature five precious paintings of Nakahara such as the cover of the magazine “Soleil” and originals of his style books. As homage to Nakahara, Koshino will draw various portraits of women with individuality on Washi papers using smudge, blurs and gradation of Sumi ink. The profile she draws with her signature is the symbol of strong women who cherish themselves.
Junichi Nakahara drew the beauty of elegant women from the pre-war to post-war eras, and Hiroko Koshino pays homage to this pioneer who pursued women’s rich lifestyle. Please enjoy the look of women who looked ahead of their time.
*Exhibited works will be partially changed during the exhibition period.
