DA NANG (VNS)– A collection of antique kimonos will be on display at Kisetsu, a shop on Nguyen Thai Hoc Street in the ancient city of Hoi An, through March 25.

Yoko Ishikawa, the shop owner, contributed five of her own 100 antique kimonos to the exhibition.

"I will also display yukata (cotton kimono), kimono jackets, wallets, handbags, scarves and t-shirts that I created from vintage kimono at the exhibition," she said. "I've transformed obi (kimono belts) into colourful handbags and handkerchiefs."

The 37-year-old Japanese entrepreneur, who has lived in the Central tourism hub since 2011, also plans to show the garments for Viet Nam-Japan Day in August. – VNS
