Myself, Linda and her daughters - I met Linda previously at the last Kimono Jack I attended, where the 4 of us all participated in a kimono fashion show together!
Butoh performer Kaoru Okamura. Her movements were very slow, controlled, and ghostly. You can see her performing her Butoh rendition of Kurokami at a previous performance here.
A pair of antique summer kimono were displayed in the lobby. This ro kimono features flying fish, a common motif in the 1930s because they resemble the importance of airplanes during that time, as well as angelfish, a non-traditional motif that was considered fashionable.
I believe this one was sha, featuring grasses and dragonflies.
Two displayed wedding kimono is the reception room.
Some photos from the Kimono Jack reception, before the fashion show. I will share photos from the fashion show in my next post, part 3.
Many beautiful kimono ladies came to the Kimono Jack!
