Geisha Charm

Eastern entertainment becomes inspiration for fashion and art
Implications - While Eastern influences abound in Western culture, there is something particularly intriguing about the geisha, a female Japanese entertainer who sings, dances and plays music. With white-painted faces, elaborate hairstyles and elegant robes, these entertainers bring an image of exoticism, allowing artists, fashion designers and photographers to captivate their own audiences by infusing their works with the same kind of magical glamor and Eastern flair.
