Sala Okabe

Award winning kimono stylist based in Melbourne, Australia.

Over the years, Sala has been introducing various kimono styles to kimono enthusiasts all over the world and those stylings are always progressive and inter-cultural, bringing traditional Japanese kimonos to the modern fashion world.

Sala has been styling people according to their character, for particular occasions and themes. From traditional to unique, even avant-garde styles for magazine shoots, shows and events.

Her styling is inspired mostly by the multicultural city of Melbourne.

In another multicultural city, Toronto, Sala will be collaborating with KIMONO BIJIN.

Japanese traditional culture has a lot of amazing techniques that are being lost. I would like to create services that connect the world through Japanese culture. KIMONO BIJIN is the first kimono social networking service ever created. It has attracted a great deal of attention not only from kimono lovers and the kimono industry but also from enthusiasts outside of the industry.

The English version of the website will be launched shortly. It is not limited to kimono and women, it is to become the largest social media site connecting Japanese culture fans throughout the world.

Last year we held kimono-focused Japanese cultural events in Toronto and NY.

This is my first time participating in Anime North. I will introduce a variety of Kawaii Kimono fashion styles, traditional Japanese hairdo kits -- which make hair arrangements easier, easy-to-wear kimono, how to tie an obi, the history of kimono, kimono technologies (how they are made), many varieties of kimono with photos, videos, and demonstration. I will provide a lot of information in an easy-to-understand format.

I'm really looking forward to seeing and talking to you all there!



Sayumi Hirata will have a sales booth in F01 of the Dealers Room in TCC South.
