My original signature 1920s style kimono, handmade to order after your measurements!
The kimono was inspired by a gorgeous black and white photograph of silent movie actress Olive Borden in a metallic lace kimono with huge tasseled sleeves.
My version has a dropped waist and closes with snaps, usually hidden by a decorative ornament (sequin appliques etc.). The top part fits rather loosely, with the material blousing over the fitted hip seam. The sleeves are very full and overlong, so they go over your hands. A lovely pair of tassels gives weight to the sleeve hems. A few decorative pleats along the sleeve tops add extra detailing.
Your version can be made in any material and colour of your choice! All trims and tassels will be in a matching colour and chosen specifically for you.
I am happy to source the material of your dreams for you!
Popular materials are: lace, chiffon, velvet, burnout velvet, sequinned chiffon, sequinned lace. The gold lace featured in the main listing image is sadly not available anymore, but I'd be more than happy to source something just as lovely for you!
This kimono is fully bespoke and made to your measurements. You will receive a specific measurement sheet from me to fill in.
