For over 40 years Naoki Nomura has been creating kimono. Schooled in the Kyo Yuzen style of kimono design, Mr. Nomura focuses on the natural beauty of his hometown of Kyoto. Mr. Nomura believes that a kimono should enhance the charm and beauty of the person who wears it and that his creations only truly become “kimono” when they are worn. He hopes that this display of his works will help people understand the richness of kimono design.
Showcasing over 20 Kimono, “Four Seasons of Kyoto” is a retrospective of Mr. Nomura’s creative career.The centerpiece of this exhibition is a series of four kimono capturing the four seasons and Kyoto’s famous Higashiyama mountain range.
The opening lecture for “Four Seasons of Kyoto” will feature a demonstration of the proper way to wear a kimono and a performance of traditional Japanese dance by Ms. Naoko Tada, who will be dressed in one of Mr. Nomura’s creations.
