Beauty of the Orient: Looking Beyond the Kimono
From the time I was a little girl, I have been fascinated with Asian culture. Their grace and beautiful style of dress shows purpose behind what each garment signifies, and this gave me respect for their traditions. I have been to exhibits that have displayed the garments of royalty, or worn robes of its common folk, but they still both held a level of beauty all its own. Here are some of the most beautiful Kimonos, Huasheng, Hanfu, crown pieces ... hope you enjoy..
