Christmas is coming and we are looking forward to another year of kimono fun! We have already started to get requests from conventions and groups for 2013 so put in your request early so we can work with you!
Next year we shall be adding to our kimono collections for shows to keep the fashion fresh and so we don’t use the same kimono over and over again! We meet the same people convention after convention so we always like to have something new for you to dress in!
Isla and I are seasoned professionals so we can help you with your Japanese culture corporate event as well as fashion shoots for portfolio work.
For conventions and events we charge £100 per kimono bearing person (traditionally two of us so that’s £200) plus travel costs. In this economic climate we have been asked what they get for £100 per person so here it is:
- One person travels and works a full day for you
- This person provides all kimono and accessories as well as taking due risk of damage to their own collection
The kimono we use are not purchased specifically for hire, they are part of our own collections that we choose to share with you. We sometimes purchase kimono that are great for demos but too impractical for our everyday wear but if we could find occasion we would!
Merry Christmas to all and we will probably see you at a convention in the new year!
Well I knew it was happening but our very own Isla Wong was featured on Paul Martins Handmade Revolution yesterday due to her fantastic kanzashi handiwork. She was one of the finalists in the show.
She received great comments on her work and came across really well. It is episode 7 on the iplayer.
But of course watching the show is where you get to see the kanzashi in detail. This piece is available to buy on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/97785821/maiko-sakura-tsumami-kanzashi-set
Well we dressed over cosplay outfits and lolita dresses at Alcon 2012 in Leicester this weekend and here are a few pictures we managed to take:

We assisted at an event for the Talaris group in Basingstoke recently.
‘Just a quick not to say thank you for attending our event. I have
received lots of feedback from the guests that they thoroughly enjoyed the kimono
demonstrations, including our Japanese colleagues who were very impressed.
If ever we need you again I’ll be in touch and if I can recommend your services I
Thanks again and enjoy the rest of the British summer!
Do you need a slice of Japanese culture at your corporate event?

Well we had a short photoshoot with Melly Snaps in Nottingham yesterday with a vintage 1970′s wedding furisode with wonderful embroidery, giving it a modern twist with heels, kanzashi and hime styling.
A sample of the shoot! Fabulous!
We hope to work with this photographer again on bigger kimono projects!
