    One thought on “Kimono Now”

    1. As a overview of kimono in this day and time, it's a good snapshot read. Perfect for the curious and the newly initiated, you get a taste of some different techniques used in kimono making, up and coming designers and others who have been in the business for a while, and a sample of how kimono has infiltrated Japanese and worldwide culture. A easy quick, beautiful read.

    2. While I didn't get everything at the start of the book about production. Textiles are not my forte. It was still an interesting read. What was more interesting was talking to the designs who are taking the kimono and re-purposing it or changing the fabric and patterns that are used. I think Odasho was my favourite. And basically the New Wave Section!
