Kimono addict

A fashion chameleon - changing the style depending on the day and mood. I have a deep passion for Harajuku fashion and Japanese kimono.

 

“Arranging different colours and items is like creating a piece of art.”

 

Settled over from Northern Germany to Japan in 2010 and fell in love with Japanese fashion, particularly the Harajuku scene. Over the years my passion for traditional aspects grew as well and I started to embrace Japanese kimono and learned how to style them.

The feeling when you wear these pieces just had me hooked, the way you move and behave seems to change, to me kimono have something magical. After all they are a piece of art, antique items even have a story: been passed from generation to generation.

My goal is to spread the word and interest in kimono in Japan and overseas. I want to inspire with modern and alternative styling ideas as well as embracing traditional aspects.

ドイツから日本へ引っ越し、先ず原宿ファッションにハマりました。そこから、日本の文化的なものにも興味を持ち始め、一着目の着物を手に入れてからは、着付けなど勉強をしました。

着物をきると、動き方や気持ちまで変わるようでマジックみたいです。着物は芸術だと思います。特に、アンティーク着物はそれぞれに歴史・物語を感じます。

国内外に和服をもっと広げたい。海外の方にも着物を知ってもらい、大好きになってもらえたらいいなと考え、海外向けに日本全国回って着物をセレクトし、提供してます。

伝統的な着付けや、新しい着物のスタイリングもしています。

Fashion should be fun like life itself.
