The kimono (着物, きもの) is a traditional Japanese garment. The term means "garment"; ki (着) means "to wear", and mono (物) means "thing" or "object". It has come to mean full-length formal robes. The standard English plural is kimonos, but kimono is also used for the plural form in English as Japanese does not distinguish plural nouns. Kimonos are often worn for important festivals and formal occasions as formal clothing.
“My love for fashion, costume and imagination were the
catalyst for this show, KIMONO. For this series I wanted
my work to be peaceful, bold and harmonic while pushing
myself with color and patterns.”
- Artist Megan Hurdle
