Creative Wearing

Kimono may begin life as traditional garments but they also unlock a world of possibility for creative, individualised dressing!

The clean and simple lines of a haori, worn over almost any garment, will lift the look to one of elegance and sophistication.

However, it’s possible to unleash your wild side with Kimono.

Options include:

  • Removing sleeves
  • cropping/shortening
  • Layering
  • Belting
  • Tucking and pinning
  • Wearing inside out
  • Wearing partly opened
  • Sewing new garments with the unpicked fabric (see our workshops for how-to!)

Over the years in our Sydney shop we developed a unique design & construction  approach to the use of unpicked kimono, and this is what we share with small groups in “Wild Kimono” at Uralla. So if you’re an interested sewer, please get in touch!  We want to share our skills & get them out in the world where others can use them.
