Japanese Brides Are Turning Their Kimonos Into Amazing Wedding Dresses, And The Results Are Just Perfect

Like us on FB:

Brides in Japan are making waves among the kimono-wearing crowds as they modify the traditional long-sleeved furisode into a unique wedding dress. The sleeves are folded down and tied at the back to create a modern twist closer to a Western wedding dress’ silhouette. The kimono’s vibrant colors and prints give it a beautiful effect that’s unlike any other wedding dress we’ve ever seen. The best part? They could switch back to a more traditional style in minutes, as nothing gets permanently altered. The Oriental Wasou shares with us a few photos of the beautiful brides in their one-of-a-kind dresses. Traditionalists may disagree, but these fashion innovations are absolutely stunning.
