Yukata is a kind of summer kimono.
It is suitable for casual and daily scenes, so Yukata is very popular among young people.
Especially many visitors are interested in wearing Yukata.
Last Tuesday, I joined photographing of local publisher FUJIMANI.
Models are members of Chirol ; the rock band from Fujisawa.
They are schoolmates of a high school located in Fujisawa.
They were very cute in Yukata.
During the photographing, I could not say except "cute!"
Styling and dressing Yukata was done by Hiroko Kinoshita, owner of Kimono Store Karako.
She had long career of Kituke (dressing kimono.) In addition, She has been practiced tea ceremony and Japanese traditional dancing for long time.
Thus people says that she has sensibility of Japanese traditional beauty.
Hair and makeup were expressed by Ikuko Yamazaki.
Her career was started at Estee Lauder.
She is warm and friendly, her makeup is brilliant and natural.
She found the beauty of the model, and she selected suitable color and texture.
I was very happy that she lives in Fujisawa.
Photographer is Yukari Osada.
Her personality is very cheerful and colorful.
So her arts are also happy and vivid.
Power of her energy made models natural and cheerful.
Her shots usually open model's heart .
If you will plan to visit Fujisawa and Kamakura, I recommend to take a photographs at her Studio located nearby Enoshima station.
Her studio will open at 1st July, 2017.
The photograph will be forgettable memory of your trip.
I had very excited experience on last Tuesday.
All staffs are my friends and seniors, the job was happy and fun.
I attended first meeting with Fujimani,
and went to purchase Yukatas at Nihonbashi,Tokyo.
All these works were great fun for me.
Yukata is simple to wear and easy to maintain.
Would you try to wear a Yukata this summer?
