Description
 
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 is a dazzling floral landscape with arching bands of flowers curbing along the sleeves, shoulders and hemline of this dazzling kimono. Hundreds of flowers - peonies, plum blossoms, irises and more - seem to float in the cloud-like arch, each delicately painted in soft pinks, purples and grays.

The background silk is a nested diamond jacquard in a color could be called primrose or perhaps a deep watermelon color - a rich background that really supports the lighter colored design. Gold leaf was used to outline the featured florals and to draw in the centers of each blossom.

Perfect for a prom, wedding, or other formal event.


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