Last week we went to see the exhibition From Geisha to Diva: The Kimonos of Ichimaru at the Textile Museum. I thought I was being a good blogger bringing my camera along, when lo and behold, it was missing the card! Classic. So I bring you a bunch of unpublished instagrams to at least give you an impression of what the show is all about.
Above, a print of Ichimaru.

Elodie: “I don’t like it.” To be fair, the singing style is quite unfamiliar to Western ears, and the samurai dance pictured above was probably pushing the limits of what a toddler can handle.
This is pretty much how we saw the exhibition. You don’t get to take much in, just a whirlwind visit like this post.
Quite a lot of kimonos on display, as well as hair accessories, a pair of shoes, and a musical instrument. To read more about the show visit the Textile Museum. There are also related events listed.
