Oh Kimono started with a dream - a dream to travel, a dream to find myself, a dream for something more.
Having always had a passion for fashion and a desire to travel, it seemed impossible yet inevitable that I would start my own clothing brand sourced from a faraway land.
This is my story and the story of how Oh Kimono came to be.
Ever since I was a little girl (and yes, maybe you have heard this cliched phrase before) I loved fashion and adored dressing up. I always imagined that one day I would have my own clothing line. I was in love with textures, patterns, and I wanted to offer designs that every woman can wear and feel special. I said to myself that one day my dream will come true - that is, until one day never came.
The moment I realized the only way it was going to happen is if I made it happen, I bought a one-way ticket to Asia and everything started to make sense. I yearned for escape, opportunity and inspiration and that was exactly what I found in the markets of Vietnam. It was more than that, so much more. The whole experience was eye-opening and it brought all my senses to life. The dream that I had since I was a little girl, the dream that never went away, was alive again.
Local markets full of unique designs, scented pathways lined with kimonos in the streets of Hanoi. That was where Oh Kimono was born.
My passion is to make women dream of something more and bring the elegance of Asia home to their wardrobes. Through my kimonos, I hope to inspire a sense of wanderlust and femininity that every woman should be proud to show.
I hope you join me on this journey.
