I decided to base my essay/poster on a kimono (Blue Mountains and Green Rivers) by Japanese textile designer, Yoshinori Tsuchiya. In the written piece below the item it states that Tsuchiya was inspired by the landscape of Mount Qingcheng in Sichuan Province in China. He represents this by using organic dyes and weaving precise geometric patterns. 

 

The kimono communicates many cultural and personal ideas, so in my essay I wanted to explore clothing as a communication. I attempted to write about clothing in terms of practicality, modesty, body adornment, culture, expression and consumerism.
