One of Tokyo’s biggest fashion festivals is descending upon us. To some it may seem that everyday in Tokyo is a fashion celebration, hello perfectly coiffed manes, immaculate styling and sky high heels, but two weeks out of the year Japan Fashion Week Organization presents a week long series of runway shows and exhibitions, promoting Japan’s top designers and showing the world why Tokyo has the best street-style to date. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo will be held March 17th -22nd, taking place primarily at Shibuya’s Hikarie building. If you frequent the neighborhood, odds are you’ll get a glimpse of editors, buyers, and bloggers hustling to and from shows, surveying collections and reporting the trends we can expect to see in Fall/ Winter 2014.
Fashion insiders aren’t the only ones who get to partake in the festivities. A number of events open to the public will occur parallel to the big runway shows, allowing any enthusiast to be apart of the city’s’ fashion fête. Check out an exhibition, try on the newest trends in accessories, sip on fashion inspired cocktails, hit up a few pop up shops, or visit Shibuya’s largest department stores for special events and promotions. Have fun exploring the culture of one of the world’s largest fashion hubs.
