Kyoto Kimono

I have had the honor of knowing Berber for over 10 years, and have always been impressed with her knowledge of traditional kimono and how to wear it properly. But beyond knowing the “how to”, she has an artist’s appreciation of “kimono culture”, which encompasses the styles, social norms, seasonality, history, motifs, textile techniques, and so many more aspects of kimono wearing.  I am especially delighted to see how her artwork has developed to include kimono in fantastic and contemporary settings.

My favorite of her recent Kimono Calendar Collection is “December”, which I have displayed in my Japanese-themed room.
