I took some photos of the behind the scenes.
We took a photo with the German model Franzi Mueller, she is also a runway model. Look how tall she is!
The sandals that she is wearing are Geisha sandals by Prada.
Sueko did not do only the kimono styling yet worked on the model's posing too.
It was a photographer's request that he wanted to feel Japanese vibes in the photo.
The Asian American Expo 2013 was held last weekend in Pomona, Calif. We had a booth where anyone could experience and the authentic Kimono dressing. We offered to dress people in Kimono and take photos and sell Kimono and Obis. It was a huge success!
We sold lots of Kimono and Obis. They were almost sold out!

I was so happy to know that non-Japanese people also like Kimono.
There was a customer that came from Taiwan, she bought four kinds of Kimonos.
There was a girl that wanted to show her grandma in Japan the Kimono picture for the first time.
Everyone had different thoughts about wearing kimono.
We can also dress you for Sechigosan and Seijinshiki.
We welcome offers for events like this.
Please contact us.
We will continue to spread Kimono culture all over the world!
