We love Ohya here at JAPANESE STREETS because not only does he give a fashionably late show but he makes it all worth while.

Models stood still on a revolving stage and we were left to bask in the glory of his creations. The models play as mannequins spoke volumes for Ohya’s fashion manifesto and we were confronted with Ohya’s take on a modern nightmare.

Giant padded coats with ruffled details, unbelievable layering and textures on dresses and models with muzzles made from their own hair made for surreal viewing but the fashion spoke for itself. These ornate and delicate pieces were the highlight of Monday’s shows and Ohya reinforced his status as one of Japan’s leading fashion designers.
