the taste's still dancin' in my mouth

I was invited to the Japan Fashion Week in Soho by my hairstylist, Takeo. It was held in a newly renovated loft on Mercer Street, and the event was part of New York Fashion Week as Designer Preview in New York. The music by Alex from Tokyo was awesome, and I thought the spotlight showcasing each brands on the hardbrick walls were a nice finishing touch to the whole cool downtown vibe. The most ogle-worthy though, were the Japanese-designed clothes specially flown in for the show. The models walked out of the arched passage ways in threes in the beautiful clothes for all to drool.

I also had the pleasure of meeting designer Yu Konishi of Yu (the one posing for a photo on the left) who is based in Sydney currently. The concept of "Personal Timeless Perfection" for his line is can be admired through his feminine cuts and elegant details, that are never too stuffy, but done just right for a modern, sensual appeal. Konishi is really approachable and friendly, willing to give you the time of his day to answer any questions you have for him. -fui
