 If you are lucky enough to be in England or able to travel to London, and share our interest in kimono culture, you should check out this London Exhibition, "Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk" at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which recently opened and runs until June 21, 2020.

 The Victoria and Albert Museum, called "V&A" for short, has a Youtube page with a preview of the exhibit (click-push HERE to see it.) Their summary of the exhibition is below:

This exhibition will present the kimono as a dynamic and constantly evolving icon of fashion, revealing the sartorial, aesthetic and social significance of the garment from the 1660s to the present day, both in Japan and the rest of the world.
