Abstract

Kanoko Shibori is a fascinating tie-dyed silk cloth. This dress is made of the Shibori cloth of 48cm in width and 360cm in length, which is a precious belt (Obi) cloth for men's kimono, about 80 years old. Its unique and beautiful texture inspired me to challenge the design of a dress utilizing non-cutting dressmaking for the full beauty of the cloth. The design image came from its graceful elasticity and gentle texture, which are good for showing the elegance of a lady.
