While out and about during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo 2012 Spring/Summer (aka Japan Fashion Week), we ran into many familiar faces.

One of the people who seemed to be everywhere during JFW was the well-known Tokyo-based fashion journalist, stylist, and designer Misha Janette. Misha is instantly recognizable in any crowd and she always seems to have a smile on her face. She was nice enough to pose for a couple of quick snaps when we ran into her at the Theatre Products show. We didn’t have time to ask her what brands she was wearing at the time, but we stole the following info from her blog (sorry for copying, Misha!): Origami dress – 132 5. Issey Miyake; Blouse – Harcoza; Tights – Vive Vagina; Bag – Hikaru Matsumura for Issey Miyake; Wig – Plumb.

Besides covering Japan Fashion Week, Misha always has a bunch of projects in motion – as well as being up to the minute with whatever’s going on in the Tokyo fashion scene. If you’d like to know more about her, definitely check out Misha’s official blog (in Japanese and English)!
