Nozomi Ishiguro A/W 14/15 2

Nozomi Ishiguro Autumn/Winter 14/15

Tokyo Fashion Week is now in full swing, and I was lucky enough to score an invite to Nozomi Ishiguro’s A/W 14/15 show on Saturday, March 15th. The show was held at Laforet in Harajuku, a shopping mall all Harajuku girls frequent. The show was due to start at 9pm, and the queue was massive,…

Tokyo Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2014

Although Tokyo street style is widely praised – especially those kooky Harajuku boys and girls – Tokyo Fashion Week does not attract as much attention as the Big Four do.

The Rise of the Scrunchie

This accessory, a staple for many little girls, is one that we all part from at some point in our lives. A good rule of thumb might be that it is pretty unfashionable to be seen dead wearing one after one’s teenage years, at least in public. Grown women presumably shun them for a good…

Free booze? Yes, please!

It was the discovery of the day, perhaps even the year so far. As my friend and I wandered into Topman in Harajuku, we were approached by a friendly sales assistant who offered us both free beer – to drink as we leisurely perused the items in store. What?? Why?? “It’s Fashion Friday,” he announced,…
