Kimono at the Victoria and Albert Museum

Well Kimono de Jack was at the Victoria and Albert museum saturday and we were horrified that the fashion segments was closed until May 🙁

We still had the Japanese exhibit and more photos can be found here.

However, we provided our own fashion:

kimono de jack

Purple Kitsuke; KDJ

Kitsuke in the V and A

I had not worn my purple hitoe kimono before but I love it. Slightly too narrow but a bit more weight loss will see the front panel slide across more 🙂

As you can see the UK KDJ fashion is an eclectic mix of traditional, taisho, hime and modern themes. We all sport our own style.

I am having a love affair with pink and purple at the moment, probably due to the Cath Kidston fabric fetish I had a month back!

It has been a kimono filled week, as I went to a conference in kimono Wednesday and have ANOTHER kimono event this Saturday!
