If there was a magazine like that, what would you like to see in it?
I would love a kimono magazine in english! I think those be nice :
- Tips about how to wear kimono when you are western build (how to deal with height, hips, bossom etc)
- Ideas to do kitsuke on a budget/ when you don’t have access to all the “real” props
- Photoshoots with kimono worn with a western fashion sense (Lyuba style <3)
- Maybe a seasonal patterns (or events ?) overview ?
- Maybe an adress book with non japanese shops and e-shop ?
To my dear followers : what would you like to read :) ?
What it would need to include:
- What places and events are appropriate for kimono
- What is respectful versus what is cultural appropriation
- When you are allowed to wear kimono if you’re not Japanese
