The Japan Society of Fairfield County is proud to give an hour long presentation on “A Year in Kimono”, which starts with the history of kimono from its origins to modern day fashion.  It will then be followed by a dressing workshop.  The workshop is funded by the Guillaine Dale Memorial.

Participants will get to experience dressing themselves in yukata, the cotton summer kimono popular at festivals and celebrations. Robyn Mortiboys of Sono Kimono, and secretary of JSFC, will be leading this fun, interactive presentation.

In the Stratford Library Lovell Room, the workshop is free, but seating is limited and registration is required at: https://stratfordlibrary.libcal.com/event/9981757

or call the Library: 203.385.4164.
