Kimono Art today — an evening with Shinichi Alai
on August 16th, 2018, 6–8 pm
Mountain Tea House Berlin
Uhlandstraße 147, 10719 Berlin
we are very proud to present Shinichi Alai with an exhibition and introduction concerning the art of Japanese Kimonos.
Shinichi Alai, born in Niigata ( Japan), artist, designer, Kimono merchant and collector, founded the studio ‘Kimono in Berlin [a]’ in Linienstraße since 2016 with the intention to present unknown artisans who manufacture traditional Japanese textiles and with the intention to introduce an approach of wearing a Kimono in a casual and mixed way in everyday life.
He is going to present some of his rare treasures and shows his latest project of modern styled, Berlin made Kimono art jackets made out of traditional Kimono fabrics manufactured in Kyoto.
‘Twas the morning before the 1st day, and all through the school,
All the faculty and staff were gathering, and looked pretty cool;
The classes were decorated by teachers with care,
In hopes that the students feel welcome there!
