「着物ワークショップ」Kimono workshops in NYC

During and after the Fudangi exhibition I wrote about in my last post, I also scheduled my first time ever kimono related workshops and some photo shoots. (Because how often do you have the chance to capture the NYC skyline with kimono?) ニューヨークにきてます! 前の記事で紹介したニューヨークにある「普段着物展示会」の前後にワークショップや着物の撮影もしてみました。 (着物姿をニューヨークで撮るならインパクトあるかなと思って・・笑) Prior to my trip I asked my followers on social media what kind of workshop they would like to attend when I am in New York / what they need help with in regards of kimono.

「日本髪の結い方」How to: Nihongami

Last Friday I went to the SHU UEMURA x MAISON KITSUNÉ launch party at Idol Tokyo. Everyone was celebrating the makeup collaboration of those two amazing brands. Upon arrival we were given a fox mask and a coupon to try their new lashes out - which my friend and I of course took advantage of immediately. Mappy (the 14 year old super-girl) was one of the special guest this night and boosted up our mood with her jazzy piano skills. Afterwards we had time to take a...
