Traditional Japanese Kimono (female). The style of this particular Kimono gives quite a regal feel which is something I should consider when looking at hierarchy of the characters within my animation. In addition, the colours are quite interesting as there is a large contrast between light and dark, which is also something I should think about.
A look at the different types of traditional clothing from around the world. The fashion industry is always borrowing ideas from other cultures and eras so it's important to know where the inspiration for each new collection comes from and for Spring Summer 2015, it's all about Japanese kimonos.
I quite like the light and loose look of this particular clothing. It has made me consider the material that I should try to recreate in my sketches and animation. I also like the colours as I believe they would represent my "light" character quite well.
