Tokyo's Cutting-edge Fashion

 

If you have even a little bit interest in fashion, Tokyo is the place to go. Especially young Japanese who feel the need to express themselves through fashion, don't hold back, which results in the wildest of styles.

Right in the tail of the various fashion weeks in cities such as Paris, Milan and New York, the whole circus travels to Tokyo and sets up camp to present the latest styles Japanese designers have on offer. For fashion lovers, the perfect time to visit Japan is doubtlessly during MBFW Tokyo! Although many showcases are on invitation only, there are also many parties for people like you and me.
