As you may know, Kimono culture is getting small nowadays. So many of people who love kimono, hold events like ‘hey get dressed with kimono and get together!’, but this doesn’t work well though I used to do it some years ago.
This is because people with no experience of Kimono, don’t have kimono, don’t know how to wear it, don’t know where to buy and what to buy, don’t know what price is appropriate.
So a new idea came up on my head; I hold an event where people gather without kimono (with Western style clothes), and talk about the above points.
I started this last year and have been doing it once every month somewhere in Tokyo like Starbucks. In the beginning only one person came but recently 8 to 9 people come.
Even though my job is a kimono shop but you don’t have to pay for the event, because I think I need to cultivate this shrinking kimono market first.
