Saori’s Room : Photos from Kimono Salone!


Hi there!
This is Saori, Kimono Coordinator.

I went to see Kimono Salone in Nihonbashi the other day and let me share some photos!


Did you find anything you like?
There were 100 coordinates by kimono shops’ stylists or personal kimono dressers/coordinators. Even you can apply to show your coordinating so why don’t you try next year? 🙂

Thank you for reading.
See you next post!
