UCHIKAKE the Another Wedding Kimono. This beautiful UCHUKAKE is usually brocaded or embroidered with the motif of congratulations such as cranes, pines, and a bounty of flowers. It is believed that UCHIKAKE started to be worn by the high-class samurai family women in the Muromachi era (1336–1573). During the Edo era (1603–1868), UCHIKAKE became a more common kimono for the high-class women like the oiran in Yoshiwara, and since then it has been recognized as a wedding kimono.
Wedding looks are already being submitted for Emperor Kaito's up coming nuptials to Queen Levana of Luna this September 25th on the night of the Full Moon. And there is hope that Her Majesty might use Eastern Commonwealth Fashion in the designing of her wedding dress.
Kimono, traditional Japanese garments, are T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn so that the hem falls to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves. Though most often worn by women , Kimonos can also be worn by men and children. Kimonos are used more often for special occasions, and less on a daily basis.
