During the Summer holiday, I went back home.
It was a bittersweet trip back, since my dearest dad past away
before we went back to see him….My son had so many things to talk to you, dad…
I was so lucky to wear this £30,000 worth Wedding Kimono on my wedding day
loaned by Philip Treacy when I was working for him.
Inside this red Kimono, I made white silk bird embroidered dupion kimono lined with gold embroidered silk satin with Shu-red Kimono sash belt.
I was so proud of my design of white kimono ( hiding the dress from Kevin, while I was making it till wedding day ) and styling, but dad said, so glad you got this Red Kimono because you looked like a bamboo doll without it!! (lol)
The headpiece was a generous gift from Philip, the fresh bouquet was made by my friend Mika.
Net gloves from my mum’s old one, Nails were light blue, silk bag and 50’s style sandals from Angel’s Antique market where I used to live nearby….
I made you bring 2 decorated barrels of Sake all the way from Japan…
I made you big speech in front of people who don’t know much about…but your speech was wonderful and so many compliments from work colleagues, friends and family made me so proud daughter!!
But I couldn’t speak in front of you, because I burst into tears before finishing all and trying to hug you before leaving, you were so embarrassed. (lol)
I made you so anxious because I live far away from you….I didn’t return anything back to you, dad.
I will try to get home at least once a year to talk to you and mum, I promise.
My lovely dad in rest in peace now….
