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 curling waves that arch up and across the back of this beautiful, formal kimono. Large mums in deep purple, gold, orange and white seem to float out of the water. Gold couching embroidery, gold stenciling on some florals as well as gold leaf edging.

A champagne-toned background and orange shading on the lining. A slight blemish on one of the sleeves - see photo.

The video below shows some beautiful examples of how these are worn traditionally and how the design is created.
