GEISHA

Back in November we ran the post, Kimono Inspired featuring many of the incredible creations of Japanese designer, Yumi Katsura. This Asian/Geisha inspiration shoot that made it's way into my inbox was dreamed up by photographer Pam Jones of Paris Mountain Photography who is Japanese and had several 100 year old kimonos tucked away in a box. Her stylist Kelley Garner put together this themed and styled shoot to juxtapose the Geisha/Asian theme with her HMU artists high fashion style!! Top it off with an amazing Asian Cake and Floral design and viola! Geisha Inspired High Fashion Styled shoot!
    In a nutshell the kimono is a traditional robe of Japanese dress.  Once worn daily by everyone in Japan from babies, geishas and samurai warriors--these days the majority of the Japanese reserve kimono dress for wedding and tea ceremonies.  And did you know I consider the beautiful obi (sash) the most stunning part of the kimono because it acts like a bustle?
