Now Seeking Community Support via Kickstarter, Kimono.Evolution the Contest will Combine the Manufacturing Techniques of East & West!
Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2018 -- Rakuon, Inc. is a Kyoto based Japanese apparel company that is known worldwide for making the globally popular Japanese traditional costume of Kimono. The company now aims to hold a kimono contest, which will basically combine the modern fashion design from New York and the traditional techniques used in Nishijin-Kyoto. Moreover, the company is planning to hold this kimono contest in New York with FIT in 2019.
In addition, the organizers of this contest have recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds and support for the contest, and they are aiming to raise a sum of $13,271 in this campaign. Moreover, the contest is also aimed at raising awareness regarding this declining traditional industry in Japan, because the demand in the market has been substantially decreasing over the past few years.

The fashion brand also aims to increase the demand by manufacturing reasonable and well-designed kimono by blending of traditional manufacturing techniques and technology and changes prices, production system, speed and quality within a global dynamic.
