There are so many beautiful things in Japan. Some are new and some are old. Although, those old things are often left unused, as if they have been asleep for a long time. In the last few years, I have been revisiting Japan and the culture.

Many of those beautiful things are not as recognised or used in Japan. I have been thinking how we can repurpose them here in Australia. Not many Australian women may wear Kimono as is.

But what if the objects are deconstructed and reworked as contemporary pieces? Do you agree with the deconstruction of those beautiful vintage things or keep them as is? What are your thoughts?

    I love the idea around using what we have to create a new, fresh way. I’ve always been sensitive around cultural misappropriation in this process however. Given your Japanese heritage, it makes perfect sense! Beautiful things to come…..
