On April 10, Junco Sato Pollack and Eri Sato Woo assisted by their friend Shiori-san presented an outstanding program on the art of kimono dress. Against the backdrop of a gorgeous wedding kimono, Junco-san, Eri-san and Shiori-san showed and described the many steps of kimono dress beginning with the basic undergarments. Using volunteer models, Eri-san and Junco-san showed different kimono styles, designs and fabrics as well as many different ways of obi tying.
Additionally Eri-san professionally styled the hair for each of the women models.
Shiori-san narrated the historic and cultural perspective for each of the different kimonos presented.
Eri-san and Junco-san also brought many different new, vintage and antique Japanese textiles, kimonos, obis, undergarments, and accessories which they displayed on tables around the room.
