In a typically edgy and creative show Ohya confirmed his ability to make imaginative and aesthetic clothing.

Models wore silver bindi like jewelry on their faces while slowly ascending the stage. Punky white shirts, aprons worn over shorts, beaded belts, Pop Art Astroboy patterned pants and unbelievably impossible hair styling by Tetsu made for magnificent viewing.

Colourful cartoon colours and futuristic black boho dresses stole the show as this collection slowly came to a close. This was pure unadulterated Pop Art in the vein of Lichtenstein and Warhol and if space age patterns and loopy designs are your thing then Ohya is your designer of choice.
