I was really excited to see this amazing outfit which Aukje made from kimono remnants, natural dyed silk and a pre-used skirt for the Wonders of Wearable Art at the Chocolate Fest in Latrobe.
And equally amazing is Aukje's 'Book to Kimono' for the Burnie 'Paper on Skin' exhibition earlier this year. This is made from antique paper which we sell in the shop and is taken from various old Japanese books. It's lined with black tissue paper and stitched with a traditional Japanese running stitch. The mini kites on the back were made by Aukje's late husband Mal.
