Yoshiki, co-founder and drummer of rock band X Japan, played the piano and drums during the show for his brand Yoshikimono, which presented kimonos in metallic colours and leather in a modern twist to the traditional garment.

Models also wore printed strapless dresses and see-through plastic tops.

“The entire kimono industry has been in crisis,” Yoshiki, whose family ran a kimono shop, said. “Despite pros and cons (to) my approach, I think Yoshikimono is meaningful in terms of awakening interest (in kimonos).”
