Tokyo Fashion Week – Wild and Wonderful!
Easy going contemporary spring-summer looks from Tae Ashida. Watch her S/S 2021 collection video here.
We are so lucky to be able to explore Tokyo Fashion Week to expand our concept of fashion. These innovative designers force us to consider options outside the designer apparel “norm.” What is fashion? Simply clothing that we put on and go about our daily routine, or is it something more? Many of the Tokyo designers show us another way.
