Hello From Japan! Opening Weekend
February 3 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Manga Maker Space: Kimono Design
In traditional Japan, a kimono was worn as daily attire. However, in more recent years kimonos are only worn on special events. The kimono has evolved from complex designs to simplified layers throughout the years; it exemplifies how fashion aids in the co-existence of traditional and modern culture. Use kawaii-inspired prints to design a traditional kimono of your own!
