Artwork Explained: Neo Geisha

Artwork Explained: Neo Geisha

Our all new Neo Geisha apparel range is officially here!

The main element of this design is centred around a classic Neo-Japanese Geisha surrounded by a blend of geometric and intricate pattern work that brings this iconic symbol of Japanese art and dedication to tradition right into the modern Neo Japanese scene. This extraordinary design was created exclusively for Lunafide by the insanely talented Secondsyndicate. 

The word Geisha directly translates to person of the arts. This is fascinating considering that Geishas are such an iconic symbol of Japanese art and their dedication to tradition, elegance and etiquette. The Geisha profession is a very mysterious industry, sometimes resembling more of a secret society than a profession.

Geisha businesses are run exclusively by women and spending time with a Geisha or training to become a Geisha is exceptionally expensive. Some interesting facts about Geishas include that their time was measured traditionally by the amount of incense sticks burned during their performances and not necessarily by a clock, it takes up to 2 hours for a Geisha to get ready every day and that their full Kimonos can weigh up to 20 kilograms. Geishas are the epitome of perseverance, elegance and discipline. 

We hope you love this incredible new collection just as much as we do!

I was a little disappointed with this design. I was expecting more of a kimono silhouette. The kimono that geisha wore were art pieces themselves. At least the iconic make-up that they wore. Still, its a beautiful combination.
