Kimono by Ityku Kuboty.
Ityku has been transformated to the perception of a kimono.
Kimonos are traditionally considered independent objects with their own unique pattern, but in a few Kubota kimono converted into a single product, so design a kimono is only a fragment of the total composition. As a result, several kimono form of an artistic or landscape.
Some of these have been involved in a kimono fashion shows.
Hallelujah, the bonnet is done! ::sings hymn:: Every pleat and every stitch on this was done by hand and I never want to hand sew anything ever again.
This was the first hat/bonnet I’ve ever made with traditional millinery techniques. The inspiration was from Byzantine religious iconography and Gaultier S/S 2007 Couture. Made on a buckram base with millinery wire, double layered flannel lining for comfort, materials used include 100% silk fabric, home decor trim, glass pearls, metal filigree and sparkly organza ribbon.
