nouveau kimono

For you Japanophiles out there, get ready for some fun with kimono at Magic Pony (694 Queen St. West). Opening Thursday March 9th (6-10pm) The Art of Kimono constitutes the Canadian premiere of Japanese Kimono designer Mamechiyo.

Some words on the show from Magic Pony:
“Pulling inspiration from all around her, Tokyo-based Mamechiyo sources vintage fabrics, creates her own textiles and styles whimsical Kimono creations that are enthusiastically embraced by a new generation. Her use of modern intertwined with tradition has resulted in a refreshing and unique interpretation of the kimono. The exhibit will combine photography, textiles and Japanese Kimono dress to create a fantastic portrayal of the exquisite world of Mamechiyo's Kimono.”
