Tanabata, Festival of the Summer Stars

Tanabata, Festival of the Summer Stars

Tanabata Matsuri, the Japanese Festival of the Summer Stars, was held at the Boston Children’s Museum on August 5th.  Dawnamatrix Designs presented a fashion show and performance based on the legend of Tanabata, a tale of two star-crossed lovers who also happen to be stars themselves, the weaver goddess Orihime (Vega) and the heavenly herdsman, Hikoboshi (Altair).  The Boston Children’s Museum also features a 100 year old authentic silk merchant’s home, transported from Japan.  We felt honored to be invited to perform at such a beautiful location.
