The 10th Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo is in progress, and several times each day TokyoFashion.com’s contributors are reporting back from runway shows all over town. On Friday March 26th, Japanese label beautiful people (written in all lower case) showcased their 2010-2011 Autumn/Winter collection on the runway at Tokyo Midtown.
Japanese designer Hidenori Kumakiri graduated from Apparel Technology Department of Bunka Fashion College in 1996. Working as a pattern maker for a major brand inspired him to create an outsourcing pattern company, entertainment Ltd. From there, he went on to become planner and designer for beautiful people.
