LA Fashion Council for Tokyo Fashion Week

As soon as I arrived on site for the show, I saw dozens of photographers parked with all their equipment focused the fashion space. I don’t like to call it a runway, since it was basically an exhibition space. Well, it may have been small, but it was certainly buzzing with fashionable people and excitement. The photographers did look rather harried, I must say, and I did feel sorry for them.

This show started a good 30 minutes late – the latest of any show I’d ever had the privilege to attend at that point – but loads of fashionable looking people were there for it, and also perhaps for the free popcorn – Garrett if you please. I was very naughty and grabbed two little packets as I left. There is a Garrett popcorn store that opened in Harajuku last year (or perhaps late 2012), replacing Accessorize –  obviously I was gutted. And the insane thing is that no matter what time you go, there is always a queue at least an hour long if you want to buy any. So I definitely wasn’t going to let free popcorn pass me by.

The show was a small one, showcasing several new designers. The models were all beautiful, but a couple of them had the oddest and most awkward walks. There was a group of girls behind me being very vocal in rather strident voices about when they thought something was kawaii, and I did wish they didn’t have to grate so hard on my poor ears, but it was a great experience on the whole. I was well chuffed about it all, and it was really lovely to see the designers come out together with the models sporting their clothes at the end – the camaraderie was touching.

Hope you enjoy the pics (I’m sorry they’re so blurry) and have a gorgeous weekend, darlings!

Chuuu xoxo

  1. Thanks so much for sharing! It’s really cool to see pictures from Tokyo fashion shows. I think my favorite outfit is the first one. The popcorn also looks really delicious. 🙂

  2. You’re in Tokyo? Oh, enjoy the weather and I hope you stay long enough to enjoy Hanami (the cherry blossoms).

    Is this the show that’s in Yurakucho?

  3. Ah, of course you’re in Japan. I get confused reading so many blogs as to who is who. (lol) But where was this fashion show and is Fashion Week on now?

    • Yes, I am. Don’t worry, it’s really hard to keep track of who is who and who is where, especially since some bloggers write about their experiences of living here and of their holidays in Japan although they aren’t based here anymore. Such is the passion for Japan, I’d say 😉

      This show was in Hikarie – many (most?) of them were, and Fashion Week was all last week. Yesterday was the last day.

      The next one should be around October.
