Category:Kitsuke of Yesteryear

While the general shape of kimono has not changed since its evolution from the kosode during the Meiji era, it has been subjected to the whim and will of fashion.

Antique postcards, photographs, and prints give an insight to the fluidity of kimono fashion before the strict rules of kitsuke schools were enforced during the post war period. Studying these images reveals different personal styles of kitsuke, colour combinations, and motif pairings.

The articles within Kitsuke of Yesteryear focus on and discuss various elements from historical images, along with ways they can be incorporated within modern kitsuke.
