Japanese Brides Are Transforming Furisode Kimonos Into Stunning Dresses

Some Japanese brides, with the help of a company called The Oriental Wasou, have been transforming their traditional furisode kimonos into stunning wedding dresses by simply removing the sleeves.

The concept makes a lot of sense when you consider that the expensive kimono they received for their Coming of Age ceremony at age 20 is being repurposed in a very meaningful way. Plus, the kimonos aren’t permanently altered, so they can be retained as a keepsake in their original form if desired. The result of the transformation is some of the most beautiful wedding dresses we’ve ever seen.
