Interesting update on the Yukiya Arashiro fan picture
I have just posted this photograph that I found at Milano Fixed‘s blog when my friend James who lives in Japan send me this interesting email.
“Mate that Kimono in Bbox Bouygues Telecom colours is unreal! I have a feeling that it’s his wife as the cost of having a custom Kimono and Obi (The elaborate belt made to hold it together) is huge.
My wife who is licensed to dress people in Kimono and give lessons to those who wear them said it would cost about 22,000 Pounds …yes TWENTY TWO THOUSAND POUNDS to make……. And that’s just average and as she can’t see the front of the belt or the kimono it’s hard to put an exact amount on it as it may be even more!”
