SALON-Lincoln Center, NYC

Having been to Tokyo-we can vouch for the ginormous amount of energy crackling through this packed city -all electrifyingly fast---like NYC's denser neighborhoods-but more eco efficient.

Fitting then- that a huge video backdrop started the really terrific Toyko collections' runway show---with fast moving images of this metropolis-starting off a mix of well done modern ensembles by seven Tokyo based labels…

Noticeable-American pop culture influence---which really has been a worldwide phenomenon-for a few decades now… since 1950's…but with distinct Japanese details/designs.

Loved the show---always fun to see the best of  what else is out in the fashion world.

The Fall 2015 roster includes: clean, contemporary clothing from AULA; layered and textured designs from DOUBLE STANDARD CLOTHING; the bold colors and couture inspired clothes from DRESSCAMPTokyo street style represented by FIG&VIPER; feminine designs from HAN AHN SOON; FW15 and 16SS limited edition collaboration collection by mastermind feat.A-GIRL'S; and the elegant world expressed by Riccimie NEW YORK.

From the press release:

"Choosing to show at New York Fashion Week rather than other fashion capitals was a natural choice as New York City is celebrated for its diversity and a kindred spirit with Tokyo's energy, eclectic tastes, and excitement," said Shinji Hirato, Producer TOKYO RUNWAY meets NEW YORK.
"We are confident showing in New York City will revitalize interest in the Japanese market from a global audience….Japanese fashion has long been an inspiration for pop culture from musicians to movies and this showcase is a prime opportunity for the fashion industry to view the diversity of Japanese fashion and coming trends first hand."
