Young unmarried women wear brightly colored kimono and obi often with whimsical design. Young women's kimonos have longer sleeves, signifying that they are not married.
After women marry the colors and design of their kimono become a bit more subdued. Senior or older adults tend to wear even more subdued, elegant colors. Often, their kimono are decorated with designs featuring cranes, a symbol of longevity.
This incredible, boldly patterned silk kimono was a show stopper.
To close the fashion show this kimono with gold brocade obi made quite the statement!
