Kimono and Nihongami Workshops in NYC

 

 

While in New York as a contributor to the Fudangi Fun exhibit, Anji SALZ @salztokyo will also be hosting two exciting workshops!

Anji SALZ is a German native who fell in love in kimono after moving to Japan. As a stylist, writer, and influencer, she works with kimono on a daily basis in Tokyo. She also offers handpicked kimono, obi, and various kimono accessories for sale through her online shop that ships worldwide.

It is Anji’s mission to spread her passion for kimono to the world by showcasing fun styling ideas all while keeping with traditional aspects. According to Anji, kimono are so versatile; you can wear it by the book, or you can let loose and bring your own vision to life by mix-matching with Western accessories, too.
