A couple of months ago, I found out Kimono Sarasa was looking for someone who can work with them at their shop and thought I could be a little help for them when my schedule allows.
Last Sunday, I worked at their booth in the antique market at Matsuya Ginza.
I've known Kimono Sarasa for a while since I started wearing kimono and they have beautiful antique kimonos like this.
Of course I was standing at their booth in kimono.
It is already the season of summer kimonos and was such a hot day...
I chose a yukata and wore it as a summer kimono with a collar.
Usually, I choose to wear a Hanhaba (half width) obi for casual occasions during summer. But the people who come to Ginza are sophisticated so I chose a summer obi with bellflowers for a more mature look.
8 hours at the booth passed really fast.
I used to work at a clothing store for several years but I've never done kimonos.
I was a bit nervous because I don't have enough knowledge of the items they had at the booth, but people who came to look around were nice.
It was such a great experience to learn more about kimono.
I'll be happy to help them when the next chance comes :)
Here is the another look with the same yukata↓
