Japan Fashion Week – Theatre Products disappoints – “New Designers Met in Europe” offers something new to JFW

New Designers Met together in Europe – Guerilla Show

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last season my favorite collection was Theatre Products, this season it did not look as good. Visit the link below to see the collections.


Mikio Sakabe and Taro plus 4 other designers showed their collections during JFW


They did a guerilla show yesterday at tokyo midtown. Even though all 6 collections are not at the same level, it is a good opportunity for the Japanese press to see what creation is.

I’ve been on the school juries or have seen the work of more than half of the participants including Yoshikazu Yamagata, Mikio Sakabe, Demna Gvasalia/Helena Lumelsky and Taro Horiuchi. All of which I’ve liked in the past.
