VA - CUSCC school talk in STCC _ Kimono Culture (和服文化)
In order to develop our VA students with international perspective and establish an aesthetic culture, we were glad to invite Dr. Kwok to present a school talk about the etiquette and history of Kimono Culture.
Kimonos (和服) are traditional Japanese style clothes. "Kimono" meant "something you wear" originally. Long ago, people in Japan wore kimonos every day. Now, people only wear a kimono for special occasions such as formal ceremonies. Japanese people have been wearing kimonos for hundreds of years. More women wear kimonos than men. Japanese Women wear kimonos most often at weddings, Japanese ceremonies, etc..
Most of Japanese women do not know how to put on a kimonos by themselves. We were very excited to have chance to learn how to wear kimonos. One of our VA students was selected for this demonstration.
Such experience also largely helped them to build up their SBA portfolio from the point of cultural exchange.
