Bjork album image Kimono by Alexander McQueen was sensecional that image was so strong and got inspired so much, decided to make my own version one day.

I got married in 1997.
I was working at Philip Treacy at that time.
We had a rented flat in Angel before we had wedding.

I was puttig the curtain not showing to Kevin while I was working on my wedding outfit.
I didn’t know but it is very bad luck  in the UK making own wedding dress or ( that explains a lot ; ) ) show your wedding outfit to your husband to be before the wedding day.

White 100% Silk Embroidered Taffeta and Gold embroidered silk satin ( Chinese ).

I had a beautiful Obi in Shu red (Vermillion Red ) that colour is perfect for Japanese image.

So when we decided to book the register office, I already made my dress idea that will be fusion Kimono deluxe ( my ultimate bespoke dress )!!

Picture is great! They never get old 🙂 It will be almost 22nd Anniversary soon 🙂

Excuse me from the bathroom of Russel Hotel 🙂 but this is the only shot I could get from top to toe my proud DIY job with Fantastic gift from Master Philip Treacy’s headpiece…..My 1950’s sandal, Satin bag and lace gloves 50’s at Angel’s Antique market. Japanese pearl necklace and handfan with Luck charm ( Omamori ). my nail was light blue- Something Blue 🙂

Kevin with wee Jamie in Kilt, he was 7 years very cute boy but he will be dad of son very soon! I am wearing beautiful Kimono lent from Maestro Philip Treacy…that is £30.000 worth Wedding Kimono from Japan. Thank you billion times for fantastic gift, my dad said I could be a bamboo doll with out them 🙂

Before returning this to Philip, I wanted to do this “Mikaeri Bijin?!” pose 🙂
