Sunaho – Influences

I first encountered antique kimono when I was taken to an antique kimono fair by my co-worker. I always dress in a simple and quiet way in my regular clothing, but there I was recommended a kimono with a very bold floral pattern. When I tried it, all the people there said I looked really good, so I surprised myself by buying it, and that was the start of my enthusiasm for kimono. Around the same time I met a woman who was writing a style book about antique kimono, and I was impressed by her, and her book. Now her book is my kimono bible and I refer to this book and some others for coordination ideas. I also go to the websites and events of young kimono artisans and I enjoy going to their events and seeing their new products and all the people dressed in kimono who go there.
