PRLog - Aug. 10, 2011 - BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Kyoto Kimono, an online vintage Japanese garment shop based in upstate New York, together with the Bush Art Gallery & Studio, will present a show at the Lowell Quilt Festival, August 12th and 13th, featuring over 200 authentic, vintage kimono robes, haori jackets, and obi sashes collected from auction houses and temple markets in Kyoto, Japan.

Kyoto Kimono owner Nancy McDonough, who lived in Kyoto for several years, will be on hand to discuss the garments, textile techniques, and the interplay between kimono and Japanese culture. McDonough began collecting vintage kimono robes in the early 90s in Kyoto, Japan and Kyoto Kimono was then born out of her desire to tell their story. Her unique collection of vintage Japanese garments ranges in date from 1930-70.  In addition, wearable accessories, scarves, purses, and totes made from recycled vintage garments are offered in her Japanique Boutique collection.

The Lowell Quilt Festival runs Friday, August 12th from 5-8pm, and Saturday, August 13th, 11a.m.-5 p.m., at the Bush Art Gallery & Studio, Lowell, MA. The Lowell Quilt Festival is a Boston, MA area favorite.
