Most of my customers are women, and they tend to walk on a wild or alternative side of life. These women range from bikers, to the wives of judges, to artists. That being said there is one common theme other then kimono I have noticed among these ladies: they do not like pink (myself included). Yes, despite this distaste for pink it seems many fall in love with pink kimono, myself included. My own normal wardrobe is mostly earthy colors, with blacks. Somehow, I have fallen in love with a handpainted pink kimono, that I pair with a pastel obi. The photo below if me wearing the kimono on Mother’s Day during a visit to the Schedel Gardens ( www.schedel-gardens.org )
What is it about kimono that can make so many women learn to like pink?
