Seen by Lynnea Schwieters

Recently I saw a beautiful exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago on the Japanese Kimono. The exhibit showcased traditional garments and modern interpretations as well as the process for developing the intricate design motifs. The kimono has been around for over six centuries and the traditional construction has changed very little. I loved the all of the colors and patterns. Here are a few of my favorites from the exhibition.
