      As part of an upcoming show at Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Chelsea, as well as a series of pieces investigating the traditional Japanese garment known as kimono, Miya Ando has hand-soldered over 4000 sterling silver rings and stainless steel plates to make a ‘Furisode‘ (long sleeve) kimono. Ando says she was inspired by a kimono that her grandmother made for her, which led to the creation of this unusual life-size replica.

    Vintage Kimono, 19th century, Japan - this looks like it may be a hikizuri, an extra-long kimono used for dancing. The padded hem allows the kimono to drag gracefully on the floor behind the dancer.

    I think this kimono is beautiful. I've worn a yukata, I'd like to have an occasion where I would wear a real kimono, just once.
