While our big store event was Misako Aoki's visit on Saturday, it's almost easy to forget that she wouldn't have been here but for the Tokyo Fashion Festa at the Fashion Institute of Technology. This was a fashion show put on mostly by students and volunteers, showcasing a few of Japan's street fashion brands in various styles. (Though oddly missing was the punk genre, probably the biggest street fashion genre in Japan.) We posted a few photos from the show earlier, but we've got a whole bunch more.
|The crowd - it was pretty full up by the time the show started.|
|Misako introducing the show, wearing Baby.|
|This is VY, wearing h.NAOTO's Sixh brand. They provided the music throughout the show.|
Both members of VY came to our store with Misako the next day too.
|Baby, the Stars Shine Bright was the first brand on display.|
|Alice and the Pirates.|
|This is Madame Killer brand.|
|Black Peace Now.|
|Angelic Pretty was next. We have those heart bags :)|
|Misako's second entrance. The crowd went wild both times she showed up.|
|Some of the NY Lolitas posed for an impromptu group photo after the show.|
|And you may have seen these next couple photos before...|
