The fashion I wouldn’t wear…

20 Jan

Last year, I attended the coming-of-age ceremony.

When I found the fashion, I couldn’t hide my shock. The fashion was Oiran fashion.

I love Japanese traditional fashion for example, Kimono, Yukata etc…

However, this Oiran fashion is not original Japanese kimono.

Oiran is Japanese courtesan. They lived in Edo era and this Oiran fashion is based on their fashion at that time.

Recently, this Oiran fashion is popular with some of young women.

I know this fashion is gorgeous but, I would not wear it.
