A yukata is an unlined cotton summer kimono and it is usually worn in more casual settings. Debbie says that on her last trip to Japan to study shibori techniques, she was very fortunate to be able to visit several antique shops in Tokyo that carry beautiful vintage fabrics, obis, kimonos and yukata. A trip to a flea market in Kyoto led to a few more treasures as vendors were selling old yukata and fabrics. This collection is based on those experiences and her love for vintage Japanese designs.
