The entry period is until January 31, 2023、and the submission deadline is February 22, 2023.
Haori, which is worn over a kimono, has long been used as a formal dress and as a fashionable item that protects against the cold and stains. One of the features is that the length and pattern change with each season, and the basic style is to wear it with the collar folded back and fastened with a haori string.
Haori is gaining attention overseas as a stylish fashion item. In order to spread the attention of haori from Kyoto to the world, The Committee is trying to rebrand it as “HAORI”, which is a new way to send out Kyoto, and they are soliciting ideas for new clothing that can be worn in everyday life.
