Naoki Nomura san from Soujuan Kimono Visited Portland at the End of September. Every year he designs art kimono based on various themes. This year the kimono were based on Basho's Journey. Here are a few of the beautiful kimono he showed in Portland.
Nomura san also had kimono, obi, zori and other accessories for dressing in kimono for sale.
And I got a personal kimono dressing lesson from the always beautiful and very accomplished Kageyama san.
A special thank you to Keiko Wright who traveled with them and provided translation.
