Kimono dressing

Well, I have finally convinced the Birmingham Japanese Society that we should have a kimono dressing. So, our December meeting will be just that. I'll write a brief presentation and then start dressing people. So... anyone that can come up and help is welcome to come if you want. Unfortunately we won't be paid for this event but it will be for the love of kimono. And there will be men there so I'm going to have to learn me some men kitsuke. I'm going to finally buy Kevin a set so I can get practicing. I will also learn yukata kitsuke for men too. I figure that might be easiest to start with.
And I am now the chairperson for the Birmingham Japanese Society so I've got my work cut out for me!

Recent kimono outings

After a long hiatus I finally got to wear kimono twice in the last two weekends in London. First was the London MCM Expo. Sadly I had no pictures of me in my kimono that day but fun was had by Hong, Isla, Chantal and myself. Secondly, was the Kabuki at Sadler's Wells last Sunday. Brilliant! Lyuba and I had a great day out.
I will post a couple of photos here but please visit my flickr page to see the rest here:
