We want to show how to enjoy kimono in various ways.
We have been participating and volunteering in charity events for Kimono fashion shows, lectures, and the Kimono dressing demonstration.
We have been in charge of Japanese national costume design for this pageant since 2 years ago.
Elegant Kimono Costumes are manufactured this year also.
Since "national costume" was not part of the show this year, we observed as guests.
All the competitors this year are on the red carpet!
Lots of flashes! First, last year's winners give the presentation.
Fashion Show starts!
We received a request to do a kimono show with a lecture and a dressing demonstration from the University of Alaska.
They are going to have the Kimono day on October 7th Sunday. Miss Alaska University will be in the Kimono show.
In the lecture, we will show you the history of the kimono, from Jyunihitoe to today's kimono style.
And we will probably have a dressing demonstration of geisha.
It is the great opprtunity to show what is a kimono and what our company can do!
