sigh, just realised that the reason I seemed to be getting a surprisingly small amount of email was that my main email@example.com address wasn’t working. I seem to have sorted out the problem but if you sent anything to it after Friday I’d appreciate it if you could re-send. Sorry for the hassle!
Er I’m a little behind on replying to emails too – my inbox is on the list of things to tackle in the morning so if you’re expecting a reply I hope it can wait until then. Right now it’s almost 1am so I should probably go to bed.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
