One bit of historical trivia that you may not know is that kimono are incredibly heavy. You'd think something as thin as silk would be light, but geisha must build up their strength to be able to wear them. Plus, the obi, which is the sash around the kimono, adds to the weight. The main significance of the kimono, though, is as a status symbol.
