I Think I'm Turning Japanese- "The Kimono Project"

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Queenie4ever is proud to announce "The Kimono Project" Sustainable Earth Friendly Collection designed by Tatiana Mclane for EM Reconstruct. The project was inspired by my experiences as a student at Stanford University's 100% Sustainable Campus this past summer by an eco friendly fashion show hosted on campus. The decision to breathe life back into an old Kimono that traveled from a flea market in Japan to L.A. was easy. My passion for learning about Japanese culture brought me to Stanford to study Intensive Japanese Language. Living on a campus that promotes sustainabilty was a life changing experience. I wanted to do my part in Saving Our Planet. It seemed only fitting that as a fashion designer I could do my part by creating an earth friendly collection. My interest in Japanese traditional clothing led me to chose the Kimono as the piece to reconstruct. I am excited to debut "The Kimono Project" during L.A. Fashion Week. See the evite for details." I hope you enjoy watching footage from my runway show video!
