I purchased my first kimono in an antique shop, not long before the autumn tradition of viewing the full moon. The kimono was from the 1910’s and as it was presented in the store, it seemed as if the garment was a traditional floral pattern, yet once I tried it on, I was surprised that it also had elements of a Japanese geometric pattern. I wore this kimono to go view the full moon and as I gazed up into the moonlight, I couldn’t help but imagine the woman or women who may have worn this kimono before me. Maybe they once wore it while gazing up at a full moon, just as I did that night, linking us through the shared experience and same kimono.
