Legendary designer Hiroko Koshino produced an inspirational show at this season’s Tokyo Collections

Along with Yab-Yum and Taishi Nobukuni, Koshino brought the theme of travel to the forefront of her Autumn/Winter collection for 2006-7.

Her show “Nomade” with snappy segments like “Cronos Wanderer” and “Modern Nomadism” toyed with notions of travel, history and memory.

Bohemian flair took the forefront of the line with lots of gypsy skirts, fur details and autumnal colours. Lots of tartan skirts and a beautiful peacock patterned pleated skirt were the opening highlights.

With a strong 60s quality she introduced velvet and a country boho look which was reminiscent of Yab-Yum. In a diverse show Koshino concluded with animal prints, black crushed velvet skirts and sombre black ensembles.

Koshino never fails to delight and the Japan Fashion Week crowds are now eagerly waiting to see if Toshikazu Iwaya’s DRESSCAMP can do any better.

We are a ladies fashion company, HQ in Hong Kong, designers in Paris and Florence. Many of our retail customers are Japanes and we also have one guy with a shop in Omote Sando who buys from us. We are looking for agents and/or distributors in Japan and will be coming to Tokyo later this week (25th-29th)
Do you have any recommendations? I have tried Googling but no luck.
Our website is under construction and we will bring a print catalog with us to show people our styles. Also will bring samples.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Maybe you could help directly? We will, of course, pay.
Best Regards
