This panel is our popular beginners panel for people new to Japanese kimono. In this panel we focus on helping to explain the basics and core concepts of good kitsuke and debunk common myths about Japanese kimono. We explain how to tell the gender of a kimono, how the genders wear their kimono differently, and why there are some differences between the genders. Midway through the panel we perform an informal Japanese kimono dressing using a yukata, demonstrating how they are worn and also that it is possible to dress yourself in a kimono. We encourage everyone attending to bring their own questions, and even bring any kimono they own that they may have questions about.
