Hey Friends! How are you? So I’m happy to say David and I have finished the 4th chapter of our book and are offically 90 pages into it! Woot woot! So I have a video to share with you today that David shot in Tokyo during japan fashion week, and I just finished editing. It is from the Fur Fur Spring 2012 presentation. It was an incredibly beautiful and spontaneous show. The models wore a mix of dark and light colored garments with flowers on their heads. We learned later from our friend that the styling of the show was mori girl. Mori girls are basically like forest wandering girls. We really loved the concept. There was really trippy, creepy music playing all through it. From time to time, some of the models would all stand up and slowly walk around and then, all at once, find a different seat and sit down. The motion and coordination of it all was really something to behold. We hope you like the video!
Ambell was a really mellow, fun show that happened in the evening later in the week. As we were generally so busy during Tokyo Fashion Week, it was a nice change of pace. It was held upstairs at the Mercedes-Benz Connection, the same venue where the Vantan & Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Presentation had been. Everyone gathered upstairs and grabbed drinks at their leisure and then wandered in and out among the other viewers and the mannequins donning the collection. We had the pleasure of meeting Bunzo Kadono, the designer for Ambell. He was very nice and said that the 1920s was a big inspiration for him in this collection and that he liked the era because it was a time where a lot of innovation was happening in women’s fashion. We, of course, loved this, as this has always been one of our favorite eras as well. The collection consisted of some bright, colorful floral prints as well as intricate lace work and also classic cuts with white and navy blue stripes. And obviously, the bouquet hats were very fun :) We hope you are enjoying the Tokyo Fashion Week photographs!
