Transcript of Project #5 Kimono is the Future

By Jessica Kieft Project #5
The Kimono in the future New Fabric used in Kimono for Japanese Restaurant The ways of the kimono are already changing. In 2010 they announced using Biofront heat-resistant Bioplastics to be used in making the silk crepe for kimonos that will be worn by the people working at a Japanese Restaurant named Murasaki located in Shanghai, China. Now they are looking into making this material eco-friendly by using traditional silk craftsmanship. The fact that this new fabric can withstand 210 degrees C means that the material can be tampered with in new ways such as ironing, high temperature dyeing, and molding. Translated into Ready to Wear Designs As time goes on the kimono will no longer look the way it is supposed to, instead it will be transformed into everyday wear or exagerated in the fashion world in couture fashion shows. The kimono will be more or an inspiration of these new garments and wont have the same meaning behind them. An example of thes changes in the kimono fashion is at Drindl Meets kimono Japan Fashion week in Tokyo. Do not have the same meaning behind them During the 19th century kimonos used to be a way to express elegance and status in Japan but now they are not often seen except for geisha houses, coming of age and tea ceremonies. Later on I'm sure even at these ceremonies they will stop wearing the traditional kimono. Even with weddings now a lot less people wear the white kimono and surveys say that around 50% of the people dont wear a kimono but maybe once every five years. Soon I believe they will become a dress of the past and people will start to wear inspired versions of the kimono instead.
