It symbolizes the fading of the colors of the family before marriage, and the color of the husband’s family from today.




Irouchikake and Shiromukuare formal dresses of the same grade.

However, because of the rich color and pattern of clothes, It reflects the gorgeous charm unique of women.

This kimono can be worn during wedding ceremonies and banquets.

Or use Shiromukuat the wedding ceremony, use Irouchikake during the banquet, so it is highly recommended to wear.




The Hikifurisode is a kind of Furisode. The Hikifurisode is the first dress of unmarried woman.
