Kobe Fashion Museum

Gnyuki Torimaru (known professionally as “Yuki”) is a Japanese-born, London-based fashion designer known for costumes worn by celebrities and royalty. Princess Diana, Queen Silvia of Sweden, and popular talents in Japan have all sported his striking garments throughout his long career. Yuki is known for pleated and draped dresses inspired by monastic robes, earning him nicknames like “Magician of Drapery” and “Silk Sculptor.” In this exhibition, styles which gained him international recognition are displayed in their splendor. About 80 pieces including costumes, sketches, and images will be on display, including a stunning blue evening gown Princess Diana wore to a dinner with Emperor Hirohito in 1986.
