In March, 1999, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology hosted the Hakubi Kyoto Kimono School, which presented an extraordinary fashion show of modern and classic kimonos. Hakubi is one of the largest and most prestigious kimono schools in Japan. Those of us fortunate enough to attend were treated to fascinating demonstrations. These included kimono model make-up application, as well as the very involved process of wearing the twelve-layered court kimono (junihitoe), attire rarely seen even by the Japanese.

(And if you never thought it would be exciting to spend an hour watching a woman slowly getting dressed on stage, you don't know what you're missing!)
