Japanese customers take to the velcro Kimono to save time as art of dressing in kimono fades with younger generation

“(New kimono – the) Velcro kimono, rather than wearers needing to attend classes, as many do — and then even still require assistance — to simply dress themselves in the many layers of gowns and underskirts, the whole operation is cut down to a matter of minutes. ..thanks to the magic of the hidden Velcro tapes.. anyone only needs to take 10 minutes to dress perfectly in Japan's gorgeous, signature garment for women.(the Kimono)”
