Last weekend, we joined the “KIMONO BANCHO2 (きもの番長)” publication party. Bancho means a leader.
Megumi Matsuda(Kimono Bancho) is the center, she’s so cute&friendly! The right is SAORI (kimono dresser&coordinator), and the left is me. Bancho prepared some illustration goods for photo shooting XD!
Megumi is an illustrator.
You can visit her official blog http://kimonobancho.blog22.fc2.com/
A lady in dots white kimono is the chief editor of Kimono-hime, and helped Kimono Bancho publishing this time. (Sorry for the photo looks blur….)
All staff wore the same kimono coordinating as Megumi’s illustrations in her book!
I thought she’s a model or something because her posing like that, actually not, but i asked her to take a photo together!
You see lots of nice dressers, don’t you? Furisode, antiques, or even hoodie under kimono!!
Mine’s back was like this. I felt that I should’ve worn some antiques or more gurly style kimono when I see everybody there. But this kimono is one of my favorite.
I asked many people to take photos together 🙂
Here’s the last photo I would like to show you! She said this is a handmade accessory by an creator who joined this party also. Isn’t is so beautiful?!
I saw almost 70-80% of participants had head accessories like that.
I truly felt and thought “Yes, this is the fashion gathering!” Everyone enjoyed kimono as fashion as Kimono Bancho proposes modern styling in her book!
