Kimonoya in Brisbane
Introducing the unique beauty of the kimono as a form of art, clothing and fashion is my passion.
After moving to Brisbane a couple of years ago, I had a vision of offering kimono fitting services in Brisbane. Kimonos are often considered difficult to wear. I would like to change the image of kimonos as something people can wear easily in Brisbane. Kimonos are a proud aspect of Japanese culture which I would like to introduce to others. At the same time, sharing my passion for kimonos help me to feel a connection to where I came from.
For me, wearing kimonos and fitting kimonos on others is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together. It is very satisfying to put the pieces in place. I love to share this feeling with others.
I founded Kimonoya in Brisbane with the hope that more people can enjoy wearing kimonos and know more about kimonos in the Brisbane area.
I am working with a couple of professional photographers, so that customers can have their photos taken wearing kimonos (rental and private ones). We have enjoyed helping customers to have their photos taken (including family photos) wearing kimonos in Brisbane's beautiful parklands under the splendid blue skies - the perfect juxtaposition of Japanese culture and Australia's environment.
Kimono dressing service for special occasions and kimono dressing lessons are available.
I also rent out kimonos and kimono accessories, so please consult me on your kimono-related needs.
