Original KIMONO by Naoki Nomura The Nippon Gallery host an Original Kimono Exhibition by Naoki Nomura, one of the living masters of the Kyo Yuzen style of kimono design. Kyo Yuzen is based on a dyeing technique perfected in Kyoto around the middle of Japan's Edo period, which lasted from 1603 to 1867.
ALL THAT KIMONO Party
Originally, "kimono" was the Japanese word for clothing. But in more recent years, the word has been used to refer specifically to traditional Japanese clothing. Kimonos as we know them today came into being during the Heian period (794-1192).
In the Heian period, a new kimono-making technique was developed. Known as the straight-line-cut method, it involved cutting pieces of fabric in straight lines and sewing them together.
