    Hiromi Asai & Kimono Artisan Kyoto

  • Hiromi Asai & Kimono Artisan Kyoto

    Kimono: Kimono is originally a Japanese garment with many unique features: form, motif, design, fabrics, and accessories. Kimono has a long history — more than 1,000 years — in Japan. Though many people in the world know the word “Kimono”, most people don’t know what really Kimono is and how beautiful Kimono is.

    Our Fashion Concept: We focus on authentic Kimono Fashion and distribute Kimono Fashion to all over the world. We believe that Kimono will be recognized as a universal formal wear that is beyond cultural and ethnic boundaries.

    Our Mission and Products: A US-based kimono fashion stylist/designer, Hiromi Asai, and a leading association of kimono artisans in Kyoto, Japan, Kimono Artisan Kyoto, collaborate for expanding the market of Kimono Fashion to the world. We will provide authentic Kimono outfits with the highest qualities directly from Kyoto. People that see our Kimono outfits will rediscover and wonder that "old-fashioned" Kimono is really a "modern" dress with huge capacity of variation.
