In Japan as in most places around the world, as a unique opportunity to celebrate together and wish for the new married couple's happiness, weddings are some of the most glamorous celebrations to be found throughout the year. And to make the most out of this special celebration, people have always prepared precious items for weddings, including the outfits worn by the wedding couple in question. This exhibition concentrates particularly on the wedding kimono worn by Japanese brides over the past hundreds of years, from Edo-era specimens (1603-1868) to those worn in more recent nuptial ceremonies. For anyone who loves beautiful kimono, and all the amazing dye work and embroidery that goes into their decoration, this exhibition is a must-see.
