Kimono originally came from China. A Chinese kimono was a kind of robe made from silk worn by persons who belonged to the upper class of society and this was worn first during the Qing Dynasty. This kimono appears as full, wide sleeves having a cross-body collar and is always tied in the waistline but it is also worn loose-fitting and flowing around the body. The Chinese kimono is securely fitted with a belt or sash when it’s fixed just about the waist. The sash or belt will frequently feature some decorative adornments or tassels that are often made in gold or red. Pieces of jade are also used as decoration in a Chinese kimono.
The Chinese kimono was originally gender-neutral clothing, which indicates that both men and women wore this piece of clothing. As fashions evolve, the garment has become extra gender-specific. The men wear pants underneath his kimono and the woman wearing a skirt with her kimono. The kimono of women started to feature elaborately designed embroidery and stitching. The Chinese Kimono was designed to flatter the very small shape of a woman. The kimono whether put on by a woman or a man, is extremely stylized clothing. In the original form of kimono there is a distinctive code that must be followed by anyone who will wear it.Kimono
