The last one is a red dress.
Keita Maruyama-san designed this just for Mao-san!!
Stylist Onu-san and Keita-san discussed on the perfect silhouette for Mao-san.
It's really cute. Even the bracelet was hand-made.
The completed outfit had such a beautiful silhouette, it's gorgeous.
Keita-san and all the staff, thank you very much!
Dress: Keita Maruyama

This dress was the last one she changed into, when Tendo Yoshimi-san appeared onstage.
Since it was the last change, the president and I watched her from the back of the hall.
My tears couldn't stop flowing looking at Mao-san on stage with the rest of the artistes singing so passionately at the ending.
Fighting for time during the outfit and hairstyle change was really a challenge but with 'Team Mao'; make-up artist Kikuji-san, stylist Onu-san and fitter Odagiri Sensei, we were able to complete everything without a hitch.
From the design submitted by Sonoda-san after the public appeal, the sakura dress created by Noda-san and the red dress made by Keita-san, Kouhaku will be memories cherished for a lifetime.
Once again, to everyone who gave their support during Kouhaku, thank you very much!!
