Behind the Scenes at the Japan Fashion Week

Mar 29 2013: A look behind the scenes during the recent Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo. Visitors, media, staff and models…

toybox: oh wow, it’s great to see Megumi Aihara again! Her style and beauty just knock me out. Wonderful images. Thank you!!
Kjeld Duits: @emi: I’m glad that as a photographer I didn’t have to wait in those long lines. Instead I had too wait among a tightly packed group of sometimes sweaty photographers, though… LOL
emi: thanks for sharing, Kjeld! i loved these photos (though i do have to admit, those long lines, not so much). :) there are always so many different styles on display – i need to plan a trip to Tokyo!

Peace Now Files for Bankruptcy

Mar 07 2013: Japanese gothic themed fashion brand Peace Now has filed for bankruptcy

Tara: h.Naoto has nothing to do with BPN and and his many designers are continuing to have a strong presence in the Japanese goth/punk/Lolita scene here in Tokyo. The weekend before the BPN stores were shut down in the Tokyo area, I was lucky enough to buy a pair of cute Peace Now pirate bear creepers. I will miss the amazing lucky bags on New Years also. RIP BPN
Kjeld Duits: @Tragic Angel: Yes, this is very sad news. Thankfully, h.Naoto is a different brand and as far as I know, doing fine.
Tragic Angel: !!!!???!!! Very sad to hear. I have some things from their lovely little shop here and wish I could have had more. The labels by h Naoto were always to my liking; the designs never got tired, quality high, and this is so very very sad. I wish him well, he is so gifted as are his team. I feel choked up.
