Modern Japan Kimono Design

One of 13 winners in the Kimono Fabric Design Competition 2017, with the entry 'Modern Japan Kimono Design'.

The design that I have created reflects a combination of both Traditional Japan and Modern Japan. The Kimono is a very traditional piece of clothing in Japan. Therefore, I have decided that I should use Japan, itself, as my design inspiration. I wanted to try and give the kimono a modern look, using block shapes, in bright colours, unlike the intricate florals that are more traditionally used. The main component in my design is a Japanese hand fan, that has been repeated in different colours. I have decided to use a hand fan to produce my design because it is an iconic, traditional item in Japan, that has been recognised worldwide as a symbol for the country.
