It’s a pity that the Japanese do not reinvent their own culture but it’s left up to foreigners to do so…

Brits don't wear kimonos on any daily basis like many Japanese women. Expensive and time-consuming to put on.

Some Japanese are repurposing beautiful kimonos into western style dresses.

When I lived in the UK enjoyed visiting Camden Passage. Also Camden Market.

The catwalk was outside in Camden Passage with a red carpet.

No point of the story without photos.

Not sure where you live, not sure if the so-called designers in this show even step foot in Japan in the past 10 years.

Here in Tokyo and as far as I know Osaka "modern" contemporary fashion kimonos are all the rage among certain sections of the youth.

In multiple different groups.

Both my son and daughter have various ( both mid 20s) and neither is into the same fashion music or much else as the other their "kimono" type clothing are totally different.

This isn't new and has been a fashion trend building for several years in Japan, Covid and people staying home the past 2 years may have slowed it down but just today walking around Nippori station and Yanaka I saw several young people in such half kimono half western mixed clothing both young women and young men.

Why does it hurt so much when there is positive news about Japan??..
