BrisStylette Melanie of Kimono Reincarnate has curated a beautiful exhibition 'The Kimono Reincarnated Project' featuring two kimonos and fifteen artists.

The exhibition examines the versatility of vintage fabric, no longer suitable for its original
use, re-purposed and given a new life. Each artist takes a piece of fabric from one of two vintage kimonos and reinterprets it in their own way. Final pieces include mixed media artworks, fashion, softies, jewellery, fabric origami, bags and a quilt.
