Last night I attended the opening of the Reincarnated Kimono Project Exhibition and was truly wowed! Congratulations to Melanie Gray Augustin who coordinated the project and to the fellow Brisbanites who participated - you really are a talented bunch!
It was difficult to take great photos among the crowd and with the evening lighting so the following is only a taste of the various interpretations that arose from using a piece of vintage kimono fabric.
Beautiful bags from Stephanie Morris of Wimcee.
A glimpse of child's outfit by Amelia Apogremiotis of Nan's Garden, floral arrangement by illustrator Rachael Smith of Penelope and Pip and dress by Maiocchi.
Cute monster toys by Danielle Wood of Manx Minx Designz.
"An Aussie in a Japanese Garden" art piece by yours truly.
Hanasho, the space where the exhibition is displayed is a lovely florist and gift shop with beautiful things made from natural materials such as these lamps and the branch sculptures you see suspended from the ceiling in the image at the top of this post.
You really must check out the exhibition for yourself. It is on until April 30th. More details here.
