Lynn Yuki – Influences

My grandmother and my mother like kimono. My grandmother often wore it and also she would go to the local kimono store that she trusted in Hyogo prefecture, where she comes from, and have kimono made for my mother. I can wear those kimono because my mother and I are the same size. I have spent three years abroad, when I was 15, and again when I was 18 and 19. I think if I had not spent that time abroad, I would not be wearing kimono now. Being outside Japan was important to recognize my own culture.
