Miki’s Kimono Story (Part 1)


STORY 1  物語1
I got this meisen kimono from my friend when I succeeded in dressing in a kimono by myself. I really love this because it has the particular characteristic of meisen style, like the colors, patterns and color combinations.
The pattern is bold but rather easy to wear. I felt a kind of liberation from my thought “kimono should be worn on formal occasions” when I wore this kimono. I went to watch a shamisen performance, kimono event, etc in this kimono. I imagine what kind of person made this kimono. I would like to see the original former owner’s coordination of this kimono in the old days if I could.
