2014 Kimono Fashion Show

Last weekend the Northwest Ohio Kimono Society hosted a kimono fashion show up in Temperance, MI.  Our Kimono de jack group went to help out and model some outfits.  It was a really fun experience and getting to hang out with so many kimono enthusiasts is always a treat.  There really were a spectacular array of outfits ranging from yukata all the way to furisode.  Unfortunately we had no male models, so no men’s wear was represented.  One of the models did bring her little girl though so we did have an example of children’s wear.  After the initial show we answered questions from the audience pertaining to kimono and it’s history.  There was also a raffle, which I was able to donate a haori to that I’ll never wear.  I feel good about it going to someone who will appreciate it.  Afterwards we got to go outside and take some photos with a nice camera set up.  Katrina, our hostess had a casual after party at her home and we spent the rest of the evening enjoying good food, drinks and new found friends.  This experience has really motivated me to try and do something similar down here in Columbus.  I’d love to see if we could get backing from JASCO and maybe get a really cool venue to do it in.  I’m probably just dreaming, but it’s a nice dream.

    Small request? I am 100% happy that you used my photos for the blog. However, could you please give me a small credit for them? It can be at the bottom, it doesn’t need to be anything huge.

      Of course! I take it you were the photographer that came out and did our group shots? What name/website/company would you like me to use for the credit? Also would it be possible to get my individual photos from you as well?

      • WasteWalker says:

        I was not the photographer, I am Ohio Kimono and a few of those are my photos. Those photos are on Facebook. Sorry about confusion XD

        Oh, it’s no problem! Sorry to have confused you with the guy. So credit to Ohio Kimono then, or Kerry Porter?
