Hijiri Uchida showed some original skeleton design jackets while Hiroki Furukawa wowed the audience and photographers with camouflage clown dungarees and pearl accompaniments. Issei Azuhata also demonstrated some real ability with capable designs.

The designers that really impressed included Takayuki Chino’s “Mould” collection which had such an urban freshness to it. Contemporary variations on tartan skirts, dapper belts, refined textiles and unusual buttoning hit the mark in this clever show. Kana Kobayashi’s use of an intertwined rope material with dreadlock consistency along with sparky cuts and holes made her one of the eyecatching talents of the day.

These are the designers of tomorrow and on this form Japan has some very skilled youngsters with very bright futures.
