I keep forgetting and newly get reminded by the clothing itself, just how unpredictable it is to fully express such a complex piece of clothing as a wedding kimono (Uchikake) with a nude figure. Unless you pan around with a film camera its a challenge to get more detailed angle. This concept didn’t work out as I had planned but did show just how stunningly rich the colour is for this brilliant piece. I did re do the idea and the key was adding a mirror to give depth/perspective.
