Jet-age kimonos bearing only a remote family resemblance to the traditional Nipponese garb - actually new creations for western tastes but embodying classic Japanese features, for evening and afternoon wear.

MS - Another model is wearing a strapless kimono satin dress with an empire waist line. MCUS - Model is wearing maybe a bright red kimono type coat, she takes it off and is wearing a sack like kimono made of silk, material hanging to her waist. (exotic influence, east meets west)
