Even though looking back my kitsuke was in its infancy my special kimono memory has to be my wedding:


I could go on about how bad my kitsuke was but I won’t, it was my wedding day!


I wore a wonderful red uchikake, red hanhaba obi and 1900’s vintage ro kurotomesode with crane design. It was a very gothy/Japanese inspired wedding.

If I had to do it again I would wear the same uchikake and this kakeshita:

Black Furisode at goth furi

with a matching obi.

Then I would change to a vintage kimono later on as kakeshita are heavy and hot!
