Kimono Dress – A one & only dress made just for you
Your Own Dress Made of One-Off Kimono
Have a kimono – the gorgeous Japanese dress robes – remodeled into an exquisite dress
Choose your favorite kimono and try it on. Then a professional photographer will take photos of you (optional plan). Afterwards, a dressmaker specializing in remodeling kimonos will take your measurements and show you several kinds of dress designs for you to choose from.
The dressmaker will then transform the kimono preserving the best features and emphasizing its unique pattern and weave. Take it home as a vivid remainder of your precious times in Kyoto (Or we are happy to send it over to you in your home country.) Your Kabuki Dress*(kimono dress) will be perfect for formal parties or on stage.
All the kimonos are formal ones: either the one worn by brides or by young ladies.
- First, choose a kimono that will be remodeled to a dress.
- A professional photographer will take photos of you in the kimono. (optional plan)
- A dressmaker will take your measurements.
