kimono – kyoto to catwalk

a must see exhibition – the beautiful kimonos on show start with antiques from the 1700 and follows the history of the kimono, from everyday wear,  special occasion, theatrical to modern day versions – including the lovely wood cut prints, hand made books containing all the designs and the actual garments themselves.  I was very proud to attend with my friend Kim, of Bentley and Spens who for several years designed the fabrics specifically to be made up into Kimonos, and one of her designs was chosen for the exhibition – the black and white seahorses that I picture here.  not just for the women and textile designers, this show is beautifully created and presented – even my husband loved it!
