Iron butterfly

Portrait by Richard Avedon

Kimono style evening dress

Hanae Mori, doyenne of Japanese fashion.

And master of the print.

But to be a woman? It seemed to mean being a woman at the beginning and being a woman forever.

Holy Hanae Mori! that kimono dress- a miracle. Mishima's quote always just beyond our understanding, mine anyway,that is why I return to him. pgt

Dear HOBAC, I love kimono dresses and these are both stunning.

I'm sorry the Westwood jacket didn't work out. It sounded wonderful xx
