Kimono Lessons in English

A few months ago I started to teach the art of kimono dressing. Today I want to introduce 2 of my precious girls and show you how far you can come in just 3 lessons.

6 months passed since we started our class. Olivia and Clare became real kimono enthusiasts and wear kimono when they can.

Yukata lesson

It all started with a 3-time course for yukata. We learned the kimono basics and how to make a too small kimono fit one’s body perfectly.

This is how far you can come in 3 times!

We discovered the differences between putting on a kimono and a yukata and mastered the way to tie a nagoya obi.

Clare was obsessed with the long sleeves and couldn’t get around to purchase a furisode. We had so much luck that we found one in her size and even an undergarment fitting her and the furisode perfectly.

Olivia bought a blue komon and orange nagoya obi and combined it with green komono.  That’s why we practiced how to to tie a o-taiko (お太鼓). (Please ignore the super messy room!)

The outcome: beautiful and confident ladies! I really love how kimono hide but emphasize femininity at the same time. Wearing kimono helps you to keep an upright carriage, which makes you feel more confident and beautiful.
