SAMEDI 1er octobre 2022 de 11H à 11h45

Kimono, a national costume of Japan, has a long history of Sake and is produced using many traditional techniques of dyeing, weaving, and embroidery. People use kimonos according to season, purpose, age, and marital status. Nowadays, most Japanese people usually wear western style clothes and kimonos on special occasions such as weddings. However, some people enjoy wearing to go to a theatre or dining out. And recently, some non-Japanese people are beginning to wear kimonos for fun. In this seminar, we will briefly explain the history of the Kimono and show the several types of Kimonos. Then demonstrate how to tie an Obi, a decorative belt for Kimono.

Cette conférence sera présentée en anglais.
