Kimono for New York Fashion Week 2016


There’s a very important and cool project happening right now…a Kickstarter to bring kimono to New York Fashion Week 2016!


“Kimono artisans and the art of kimono-making are on the verge of a crisis because of the reduction of the kimono market, the aging of artisans, and lack of their successors in Japan. It is estimated that most kimono manufacturers will have to discontinue their trade in as little as a decade due to these factors. In order to expand the kimono market to the world, kimono artisans plan to show their kimono outfits on stage at New York Fashion Week in February 2016, produced by Hiromi Asai. This project is organized by two non-profit organization, Kimono Hiro Inc. and Kimono Artisan Kyoto, in US and Japan, respectively.”

If the Kickstarter succeeds, this will be the world’s first crowdfunding-based fashion show on the standard venues at New York…
