describe your artistic style: Modern Kimono robes are not your traditional kimono style robe. These robes have a sophisticated, modern twist to them. Chic but functional. We think you will really appreciate the sleek, flattering rounded neckline as opposed to a traditional kimono neckband and the 3/4 length sleeve so while washing your face or dishes your sleeves won't get wet or in the way. A modern twist on a traditional Kimono robe. Sewn in San Francisco, CA. with 100% premium designer cotton. These robes will be a special reminder to all who wear them long after the wedding day has come and gone. We custom cut and sew each robe to your order to ensure your robe is the right length for you and your lucky ladies. I am 5" 10" and have always been sensitive to things always being too short for me. We want to make sure everyone's robes fit perfectly! We also tie personalized hang tags with each bridesmaids name on each robe with a grosgrain ribbon to make the gift even more special to your girls.
what inspires you? A couple of years ago, when my teenage son started to bring home his high school friends late at night (and a plethora of other light bulb moments - like when my wrapped towel kept falling down when I lifted my arms to blow dry my hair), I realized that I didn't have an appropriate robe that I loved to wear. I didn't want to wear that heavy terry cloth robe (especially now that I am fifty + and am starting those lovely hot flashes), and I didn't want to put on that very, very thoughtful present that my husband gave me (the slinky robe only to be worn only in the bedroom), so I decided to design a modern, sophisticated, functional kimono style robe. My first thought was to design a rounded, elegant flattering neckline as opposed to the traditional band that goes high up around your neck. I also designed a 3/4 kimono sleeves just to hit a little below the elbow so you still have the beautiful kimono sleeve effect but the sleeves won't get in your way while moving around the house. No more rolling/pushing up your sleeves so they don't get wet! I couldn't find this robe I was looking for anywhere in the stores so I started Modern Kimono to share them with anyone who is looking for the same type of robe as I was. I only sew my robes with 100% premium designer cotton so they feel super soft every time you put them on and they will last you and your girls a lifetime.
what do you love about weddings? Psyched to sew my robes for my brides. I love my brides. All the photos you are actually looking at are real photos of my brides and bridesmaid's getting ready before their big day. I only use real bridal photos to showcase Modern Kimono robes. They send them into me and allow me to use them in my website. Send me yours! We love to share our feedback from my customers. Here is a recent email I received from one of my fabulous brides: "The robes were a huge hit at my wedding. My bridesmaids and I range from 4'9" to 6'1" and from size 0 to 14. I cannot thank you enough for making these fit each woman perfectly. I have loved wearing it ever since, the cotton is so soft, the fit is just perfect - modest yet modern, practical yet luxurious. We got many lovely gifts for our wedding, but honestly, the one I got myself is one of my favorites!"
