Kimono collection to debut in NYFW

Feb '16
Hiromi Asai, a New York based, internationally acclaimed fashion designer and Kimono stylist, will present a fashion show featuring authentic Kimono ion February 16 at the New York Fashion Week.

Hiromi Asai Fall/Winter 2016 Women's Collection is the world's first Kimono fashion show at NYFW, the designer said in press release.

Hiromi Asai is a also the producer of this collection. The title of the Fall/Winter 2016 collection is "Spirit of the Earth". Hiromi always says that Kimono is universal fashion that is beyond cultural and ethnic boundaries. The principle of Hiromi's fashion design is to feel the whisper of the borderless Earth through Kimono.

Hiromi presents authentic Kimono and dresses made from Kimono textiles as wearable real fashion for people all over the world. Kimono Artisan Kyoto, a leading association of Kimono textile artisans in Japan, provides textiles and accessories which are elaborately manufactured by hand. Hiromi integrates the art of Kimono creation by artisans into sophisticated universal fashion.

Yet in its native Japan the art of Kimono creation is on the verge of crisis, because of reduction of Kimono market, aging artisans, and lack of their successors. To produce a runway show featuring Kimono in one of the biggest international fashion events, Hiromi organized the campaign "To Save Kimono Artisans" at Kickstarter in June 2015. This crowdfunding campaign was successfully funded at over $67,000 at the end of July 2015. This runway show is also the world first crowdfunding-based show at the New York Fashion Week. (SH)
