Silk... sheer silk!
Japanese version of Cinderella's glass slipper. A woman in Kimono is a woman with power unrivalled by any. It is THE epitome of beauty in Japanese eyes and it is indeed a most glamourous event to adorn a Kimono and present oneself to the world in that sense. Kimono is glamorous and refined.

About this topic


The kimono (着物is a Japanese traditional garment worn by women, men and children. "Kimono" means a "thing to wear" (ki "wear" and mono "thing") in Japanese, has come to denote these full-length robes. 

Kimonos are T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn and wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right (except when dressing the dead for burial, it's right over left!), and secured by a sash called an obi, which is tied at the back. Kimonos are generally worn with traditional footwear (especially geta or zori) and split-toe socks (tabi)

Today, kimonos are mostly worn on special occasions by women. Men only wear the kimono at weddings, tea ceremonies, and other special or very formal occasions. Professional sumo wrestlers are often seen in the kimono as a requirement.
