Spring kitsuke Styling

Spring kitsuke StylingFor a party of a sake brand at a nice Izakaya I did a spring kitsuke styling job.

As the occasion was festive but also a bit formal/chic, I chose a houmongi and silver zori. The host of the party wanted young and fresh so I was contemplating a furisode, but I knew/guessed time would be limited, so a fresh pink houmongi with fresh blue and silver obi was a saver (time wise) choice for this spring kitsuke styling.

And of course it is spring time and the blossoms are almost in full bloom here, so a pink kimono seemed very suitable to me at this time and place.

Originally there would have been a second girl and for her I had a blue kimono paired with a pink obi so they would look coordinated or like sisters.

Paired with silver zori and a darker pink/white obi-age I think she looks pretty chic.

The make-up artist did a geisha/Asian inspired look and hair-do I think she looks sweet.
