ONNA-BUGEISHA

Yes. There were samurai women. They were warriors who belonged to the Japanese nobility and were trained to defend their homes, family and community. Some of them fought alongside the noble male Japanese samurai. But are there onna bugeisha these days? Yes. We are them. Me. You. These women who were champions on the battlefield are today the inspiration for the raw cotton kimono created by designer Toni Sean. And if we need a uniform onna-bugeisha style, the From 6 to 7 kimono is certainly the perfect choice for the battles of contemporary women.

90’s

(Gente, o texto abaixo está todo em Inglês; mas vale a pena treinar, né, miga?… Vamos lá!)

I have readers of all ages, 13, 28, 61 … and so on. It would be a mistake to say that all of us here clearly experienced the delights of the 90’s, right? Well, my adolescence extended for much of the 90’s and I can say that everything – e-ve-ry-thing!!! except crappy news on world affairs – was really fun. I am not alone in this statement. During New York Fashion Week, I had the honor of meeting designer Toni Sean. Would you be surprised to learn our conversation started because of our mutual love the 90’s?

“The fashion was much more pleasurable and magical, without pressures for millionaire figures. While everything today seems to revolve around a market, the fashion of the ’90s existed through the exercise of creation” said Sean before one of the runaway shows we watched together.

The designer draws inspiration from names from the couture universe and prominent personalities of the ’90s to design his creations. Names such as Dior, Gaultier and Valentino – responsible for some of the most iconic pieces of the ’90s – are some of the references to the artisanal sewing of Toni Sean, who serves a unisex clientele at his studio in New York, shaping each piece to the client’s body .

Parallel to his exclusive sewing appointments, Sean promotes the line From 6 to 7, a ready to wear brand that Living Aurora is in love with. The look is ready to wear (such as this one) and these creations are all available for purchase HERE
