Yours truly was called upon to loan kimono and accessories for the display! The really nice thing is that the garden director wants a wide section of different types of kimono (i.e. everyday kimono) rather than just the fancy stuff. Kimono and obi will feature different levels of formality as well as garments showing seasonal changes.

Here is the announcement by the Southern Arizona Japanese Cultural Coalition.
I'll be there and if the weather is cool enough, I will be wearing that bingata kimono in the photo!
I hope to see you there.
