Taito Designers Village: An Artist's Dream Come True

An old elementary school in Tokyo’s Taito district, known for its artisans and craftspeople, has been transformed into a community of artists and designers

Maria: I would have gone bankrupt if I were there. Buying like crazy everything, from earrings to hats!
Sha-Sonja Wilson: amazing pics!

Kjeld Duits: @Maria: Thank YOU for your support.
Maria: Jean Paul Gaultier <33 She is stunning. Really beautiful. Love her hair. Thanks for your work KD and Anzu (n_n)
Kjeld Duits: @Monik: Michie somehow reminds me of a modern Asian version of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. It is awesome what she achieved while mainly using black.

Carey: I love JC shoes!
Kjeld Duits: @Maria: I will ask Mariko about the flowers and lace when I run into her next time. ^_-
Maria: @KD: I remembered a Mariko, then I thought: “mmm maybe it is because of the idol Mariko…, no, I do remember a Mariko here in JS, well, I’ll ask.” (n_n”) In fact, I felt like it wasn’t last year but this year. xD She stills uses flowers and lace, maybe that is her signature ;)

Kjeld Duits: @Carey: WASH is a brand of the Washington chain of shoe stores. Washington has a web shop, but I was unable to find WASH branded shoes on it. Perhaps you can find shoes that you like nonetheless. However, I don’t know if they ship abroad. And the site is in Japanese only…
Carey: Does WASH hava a website for their boots? If not, where can I find them online?
Kjeld Duits: @Theo: I always asked to see their phone and shot it as a part of the whole look. Once in a while there was a phone that I had already shot several times, but that was not a big issue. Because now at least half of the people have iPhones, I find it a bit rude to ask to see their phone and then not to shoot it. As iPhone cases become more creative, I might be able to get back to shooting phones again. Although, I’d be shooting mostly cases instead of phones!

Kjeld Duits: @Sunnie: Ayon’s character is probably even more colorful than Kyary’s. She was a lot of fun to shoot!
Sunnie: She kind of looks like Kyary, but a bit older. Cute!
Maria: @KD: I am a big fan of Chanel, both Coco and Karl n_n
