This is a great news for those who have a taste for global culture. Google has launched a virtual exhibition gallery under its We Wear Culture project. For this, the search giant has collaborated with 183 cultural institutions across the globe.
Announcing the the launch of the world fashion exhibit on Google Arts and Culture, Amit Sood, Director of Google Arts & Culture said: “We invite everyone to browse the exhibition on their phones or laptops and learn about the stories behind what you wear. You might be surprised to find out that your Saree, jeans or the black dress in your wardrobe have a centuries-old story. What you wear is true culture and more often than not a piece of art.”
You can explore iconic pieces which changed the dressing sense from Chanel’s Black Dress from Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, France (1925). Then there are dresses from Japanese culture, Indian culture and London. All in all, there are a total of 50,000 photographs. In order to visit this gallery, go to g.co/wewearculture. One can also download the Google Arts and Culture app which is available for both the iOS as well as the Android
