The Nisei Week Foundation announces a very exciting fashion event featuring Kimono SK on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 6:30 p.m., at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles.

A film noir vibe, with an evening of sights and sounds that will transport you into a world of samurai with vintage and modern kimono, this event promises to be special.

A reception will follow the fashion event, which is the Nisei Week Japanese Festival’s 75th Anniversary finale.

Tickets are $50 (general seating) and available on Eventbrite or download ticket request form on niseiweek.org.

The event features the designs of Sueko Oshimoto of Kimono SK, a world renowned kimono stylist and designer.

Her creations have been seen in numerous international fashion publications and films/television, most recently seen in Wolverine, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, J-Pop group videos, and music events.

Sueko has designed the Miss Universe Japan national costume twice and was recently confirmed to design the current Miss Japan’s national costume for the pageant in January 2016.

The show will include a fun hat segment from Goorin Bros millinery and exquisite, one-of-a-kind vintage dresses from Ms. Vintage in Playa del Rey.

It will also feature a geisha dancer along with modern interpretations of kimono (hip hop and Harajuku inspired). Models will include former Nisei Week queens and court members. The 2015 Nisei Week queen and her court will also be present at the event.

The Japanese American National Museum is located at 100 N Central Avenue, in Los Angeles.
