It's interesting how people change the style of the clothes from way back. Looking at these pictures, I think they're more of the recent types of "traditional clothing" i'm not sure. Go back and back, and they're styles are drastically different, but you can see how they're the base for the modern ones nowadays.

It'd be cool if you place one of the older ones, with the year it was taken, and place it next to newer ones, with the year it was taken of course. but......I can say that it has changed a lot....


Yeah. I have some Kimono that date back to the Taisho period and you can see how different everything was. I think now it's generally the way that things are dyed is different, colors tend to be considerably more vibrant, there exists the machine sewing (which is actually poor quality kimono) and in general, the way that they're worn.

I'll have to look for some images for you.

I think they're very beautiful. I like the kimono a little more. I wish I could've obtained my mother's kimono when she received it as a gift, but it was stolen

If I ever go to Japan one day, I hope to give her another one and buy myself one.

and for the Chinese traditional clothing, I got this information from wikipedia, so it's not that dependable, but it said the first style was a simple large fabric that covered up all the curves and everything. It covered all the shoulders, wrists, and almost feet. Now, there are some styles without sleeves, and some are even above the knees. So that's how it changed.

and yeah, the invention of the sewing machine sure changed the way clothing was made. It's now made quicker and more precise. and how is the way a kimono worn different from the Taisho period, from then to now?

Taisho period kimono often tended to be a bit more simple than Showa and Heisei period kimono. One manga series that demonstrates this extremely well and QUITE accurately is Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden. Okuda Takiko is a typical girl of her period - she keeps her hair tied back in bows and such, and often wears a furisode (or houmongi, I forget) with hakama. The Hakama often either has a pattern sewn near the top, or the obi is very well seen at the top. Women often wore these with boots.


This is a kurotomesode, which is very typical for the Taisho Period. I have a kurotomesode that looks a lot like this (the reason I don't wear it is because I'm not married - in which case, I'd wear a furisode - and it's in extremely delicate condition)

These two images (this is from my friend's graduation) are similar to how girls wore their kimono in the Taisho period.


(Her graduation class. Notice the graduates at the first row.)

pretty! but doesn't the obi, is that what it's called?, feel like it's strangling you? or is it just me? and what's the general name for it? there's furisode, hakama, kimono, (aaah! i can't keep track of what is part of the clothing, and what is a separate design from it, forgive me!!!) and is wearing it supposed to be comfortable?
