In Japan, the imperial court of the Asuka period (538–719) adopted Chinese clothing; and from there, various forms of Japanese garments evolved from the Chinese model. As our current exhibition Crowning Glory: The Beauty of Ladies' Ornaments from Asia and Europe draws to a close, we are pleased to invite Ms. Akemi Takahshi, lender of the Japanese kimonos for the exhibition, to introduce the rules and traditions of kimono dressing and demonstrate nihon buyō (Japanese traditional dance) as the last lecture of our current series.

Ms. Takahashi is an experienced kimono instructor based in Hong Kong and an accredited master of Japanese traditional dance. She was awarded 2nd Grade Professional Kimono Dresser by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare; and is a member of the Association of Professional Kimono Dresser. She is also an Accredited Master of Japanese Traditional Dance by Wakayagi-Ryu Japanese Traditional Dance School. (Stage Artist Name: Kochiharu Wakayagi)
