Nao’s Influences

I don’t have any specific influence. I have liked kimono since my childhood and wanted a chance to wear it, but my mother was so severe that I didn’t. It would have become an argument. I look at the internet and learn from it, and I am encouraged by seeing people mixing kimono with western clothes and wearing it in new ways. I have learnt from many different people’s videos. There are some people on Face Book who show off very expensive kimono in fancy hotels. They use it as a way of showing status, but they make it too special and I don’t share their values. I like the way some non-Japanese are wearing it, and I like a natural style.
