Finding a Balance with the New Era
I'm always excited to see what kind of new designs come to life when working with you. Your concept for this show was "Balance control," in which I saw many refreshing diverse and graphical designs.
The new Reiwa era has arrived, and my challenge was how to come up with a balanced kimono style. Inbound visitors to Japan have increased over the past few years. They come to encounter the new Japan, so as a modern kimono creator I felt the need to come up with styles that embrace the atmosphere of the modern era rather than the past.
