About Urban Kimono's Designer
In the early 2000s, at the age of 16, Anastasia Gorodilova moved from Russia to Japan and started pursuing a successful career as a fashion model travelling for over 10 years between Tokyo, New York, Paris, London and Milan, where she finally settled. During her Japanese period she was powerfully seduced by Japanese culture, harmony and refined elegance, which led her to the foundation of her own brand Urban Kimono.
Urban Kimono is a premium luxury women’s brand with a collection respectfully built around an artistic modern expression of the traditional Japanese “Kimono”, as a single item produced in a variety of patterns (long, short, tailleur, etc.) and fabrics (silk, velvet, cashmere, jacquard etc.). Keeping this key item as the foundation, our goal is to grow organically, expanding with new items and incorporating accessories.
Lightness, slowness and consistency as the most sophisticated expressions of human beauty
