Aren't these fabrics gorgeous? A traditional, silk kimono is very expensive ($10,000 for just the kimono and the complete outfit can exceed $20,000). Many kimonos are custom made and are traditionally sewn by hand.
Some styles have long sleeves, like the one being admired by this customer. Other kimonos have shorter sleeves, like the one on the mannequin in the foreground.
Notice the overhead posters which show different styles of kimonos.
Kimonos in dark colors were mainly worn by older women. This design would have been at the bottom of the kimono.
I didn't purchase a kimono (too expensive), but I did acquire some used obis. I framed some of them and made throw pillows out of others. Recently my friend, Sheila gave me some beautiful, silk kimono scraps. I'm still trying to decide what to make with them. Thank you, Sheila for your generosity.
