Hiromi Asai is a United States-based fashion designer and kimono stylist. Hiromi creatively designs exclusive styles all made by Japanese high-end Kimono textiles.
The Kimono was originally a Japanese garment with many unique features: form, motif, design, fabrics, and accessories. It has a long history — more than 1,000 years — in Japan, yet in its native country the art of kimono creation is on the verge of crisis. Reduction of the kimono market, aging of artisans, and lack of their successors are slowly fading the once vibrant art. Hiromi hopes to reverse the trend and bring her collection all made by Kimono textiles to its rightful forefront in fashion.
Hiromi Asai first developed women’s fashion made by Kimono textiles, presented Hiromi Asai & Kimono Artisan Kyoto collection at 2016 F/W New York Fashion Week, and distributed it to the world. Now Hiromi Asai expands her collection to men’s wear. Hiromi Asai provides her clients outfits of the highest quality. Hiromi also integrates fabrics of the highest quality and sophisticated elegant outlook.
Many Kimono craftsmen all over Japan provide weaving and dyeing textiles for our products, including:
• Jacquard weave
• Donsu silk damask
• Rinzu figured satin
• Chirimen crepe
• Nuitori embroidery and lacing
• Bokashizome ombre dyeing
• Hikizome brush dyeing
• Yuzen dyeing
Kimono craftsmen developed all these traditional techniques several hundreds (or more than one thousand) years ago and have been taking over them for many generations.
