"Floral Curtain" Furisode Kimono

This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman. Furisode are worn for formal events, such as Seijin-no-hi (Coming of Age Day, sometimes translated as Adults Day) in early January. Furisode are also worn for weddings, recitals, receptions, and other celebrations calling for formal attire. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

This furisode features an unusual design of what appears to be flowing, rippling fabric in shades of blue against a soft dusty rose background that darkens to a deep burgundy at the hem. Beautiful bouquets - including irises, camillas and peonies - float all along the design. Masterful shading and dye work on the petals - some of the florals seem to flow behind the curtains...
