Vintage Kimono jackets (short kimono or haori) are hot fashion trend, especially for weddings. This gold embroidered haori-Kimono is so well made that it can be worn inside out. The haori has one layer of silk, like a kimono, and is lined with another layer of silk. Geisha, professional hostesses and entertainers, were the first women to wear haori over their kimonos. During the seventeenth century geisha in the Fukagawa neighborhood of Edo, as Tokyo was then called, started to wear haori to assert their mastery and skill in the arts.
