Invisible Mending: The Magic of Kimono Restoration @ Japan Society Talks+
May 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Some might see a tear or stain on a beautiful kimono and think the garment can never be restored to its former glory. But Japan’s kimono restoration artisans aim to do just that. These master craftsmen can make small holes seem to disappear as though they never existed, and completely transform discolored garments. High-end apparel makers around the world have taken note, and are now applying these techniques to conserving Western fashions like suits and gowns. At this talk, Koshiro Tatematsu of kimono restoration service Chojiya unravels some of the mysteries behind these fascinating mending techniques, and reveals how they’re being used in the fashion world today.

Followed by a reception.
