Kimonos are traditional Japanese style clothes. "Kimono" meant "something you wear" originally. Long ago, people in Japan wore kimonos every day. Now, people only wear a kimono for special occasions such as formal ceremonies.
Yuzen kimono by Japanese National Living Treasure, Hiroshi Tajima Stunningly beautiful & if I hadn't been seen the date I would have tipped that this piece of clothing must have come from a much newer collection ;
