We joined “KIMONO QUEEN CONTEST 2017” which is held on the 25th of February.

This is one of the largest kimono contests in Japan and 343 beautiful women, who were selected in the district's preliminaries, modelled their appearance dressed in kimono at this contest. There were 6,435 responses to this contest from all over the country.
We presented “Princess” bag, which is the icon of our brand, as an extra prize to Kimono Queen, Ms. Minami Himeno.

The special booth was set up and many commemorative photos were taken by professional photographers. More than 300 entries coordinated their kimono with “Princess” bag and participated in this photo session.

The photos of their glamorous appearance in kimono with elegant “Princess” bag became a great and special memory of this day.
