Roses are red

Today I had a chance to dress these two lovely ladies in kimono. It was a first time for both of them to wear a kimono but you really couldn't tell because they both look so graceful and comfortable wearing them. Even though the wind was strong!

Roses are not the most usual motif in kimono - and not a bit traditional - but they are still one of my favorite motifs. The red rose furisode and Mamechiyo's Rose Bouquet obi really don't deserve to just lie wrapped away in my closet. This reminds me I should wear kimono more often.

There's more on my flickr.
