Japanese fashion collection shown at Art Institute

Not your typical museum showcase.

On Saturday, a dozen of Japanese fashion pieces go on display next to priceless ancient Japanese pots and colorful woodblock prints at the Art Institute of Chicago exhibit "Material Translations."

Gillion Carrara, the Fashion Resource Center director and founder, honed the clothing collection into a library of museum-quality fashion -- with a very anti-museum mission.

Part of the School of the Art Institute's special collections, the Fashion Resource Center holds rack after rack of designer clothing, all of it meant to be touched.

See some pictures of the clothing and read more about the exhibit here.
