Saisei Apparel is a clothing line by Kim Ramirez that specializes in breathing new life into vintage & antique kimonos and obis by creating one-of-a-kind garments.
These vintage and antique kimonos are transformed into contemporary tunics, dresses, coats, and bags. Kim’s work represents the rebirth of Japanese heritage in its western form.
Saisei Apparel blends the history of a product with the contemporary shopper of today. Each kimono and obi are hand-painted or woven by a person, not a machine; the garment itself is unmatched to any other. Additionally, the garments have a multi-generational appeal. There is something for every age and every person.
Saisei garments are about remembering the past in order to craft the future.
