The second project made during Graduate Diploma CSM ( 2015-16).
Being half-Japanese but growing up in Brazil, the kimono had always been an elusive piece to me.
And even though I studied in Tokyo for 2 years, it was only in London, many years later, that I bought my first one!
Traditionally worn in a very constricting way and with MANY layers as not to show any skin, in this project I wanted to use similar geometrical pattern pieces to make a more dramatic silhouette.
Great ideas but zero execution?
