Maiko-No-Kimono

May’s fashion coverage is all about subtlety, strength and grace, whether in your fashion choices or actions. With this in mind, who better to seek inspiration from than the geisha, as Japanese influence has been a favorite at fashion weeks this spring. It is still said that geisha inhabit a separate reality called Karyukai – “the flower and willow world.” This month, we explore bold prints, fabric layering, strong lines as well as delicate feminine fabrics for contrast.

Luckily for us, there was more than enough to choose from, even some new fashion finds like impressive accessories by Harmony Necklaces, a sculpted headpiece from the CalmRebel collection by up-and-comer Kan Kanemura and a beautiful new line of shoes by Fashion4Freedom which is also the focus of our column this month.
