Japanese kimonos not only have told the story of a very vibrant Japanese culture, but also can infuse new breath into world fashion. Creating a bold fusion between the modern fashion and the classical kimono style is not an easy task, but Mode & Classic New York and a kimono fashion designer / stylist, Hiromi Asai shows new fusion styles on the stage.

This Fashion Show is held on the Opening Night (Eco- Friendly evening) of Brooklyn (BK) Fashion Weekend on 29th September, 2011 at 7:30PM .

The location of this show is Industry City at Bush Terminal at 241 37th Street Brooklyn NY 11232.

Japan had an enormous earthquake / tsunami in March. A huge number of people were killed or injured. Many people lost their dreams and futures. BK Fashion Weekend and Mode & Classic desire to encourage Japanese people to move up in the fashion field. This show is organized also for encouragement and support of Japanese people. All donations and proceeds for this show will benefit Japan earthquake / tsunami victims through Japan Society in New York.

Mode & Classic New York is founded by Hiromi Asai, a kimono wardrobe designer / stylist in 2010. Now Mode & Classic is recognized as unique Kimono professionals in USA as well as in the world. Their pieces have made their way in advertisements for Verizon Wireless and various fashion magazines, and also were featured with a designer Susan Cianciolo at the New York Fashion Week 2011 Autumn/Winter collections. Recently, the collaboration in the art filed was accomplished with an artist and photographer Laurie Simmons. Furthermore, Mode & Classic successfully produced kimono fashion shows at Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and The Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg, Sweden in April, 2011. Mode & Classic strives to sublime the Japanese exquisite style to the global fashion arena.

BK Fashion Weekend presented by Brooklyn Style Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, found in late 2004, has emerged as a powerful new showcase for fashion talent on the verge of stardom in New York. To overcome the dearth of opportunity and the difficulty in breaking into the fashion business, Brooklyn Style Foundation provides various opportunities for designers, stylists and models to present their talents and works to ensure that they can make a living from the work they love. BK Fashion Weekend, expanding rapidly, should be comparable to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (New York) in the near future.

BK Fashion Weekend 2012 Spring / Summer is scheduled from 29th September to 2nd Octobe. HINAYA KYOTO and Mode & Classic LLC provide kimonos, fabrics, and obi sashes.
