Dear Shaded Viewers,

TACHIAGARI means "beginning' in Japanese. DSM is holding its bi-annual Tachiagari to welcome the new season which occurs every January and July. The DSM closes down for 3 days giving them just enough time to redevelop spaces and install the new collections. Along with the redevelopement of the space the designers also were encourged to re-design their own areas.
