The kimono brand, “YOSHIKIMONO”, was created by the artist, Mr. YOSHIKI. Being born as the first son of a kimono fabric dealer shop, Mr. YOSHIKI has had a strong wish to introduce kimonos, one of Japan’s beautiful traditional cultures, to the world. This strong will, and the meeting with Mr. Keigo Kano, of SCOPE COCO Co., Ltd., one of Kyoto’s oldest and most prestigious kimono makers, lead to the realization of his own original kimono brand, “YOSHIKIMONO”.
The brand was first introduced in March, 2011, at the “ASIA GIRLS EXPLOSION”, Asia’s largest music & fashion collaboration event, held at Yoyogi National Stadium. And, in October, 2015, the brand will realize a full scale collection debut, at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo.
