Tokyo’s hot humid summer weather can be brutal. The Harajuku Fashion Walk crew decided that the best way to escape the heat was to throw a big summer-themed party inside of a nice cool air conditioned club. The party, held this last weekend in Tokyo, was the Summer 2012 edition of Pop N Cute. Like the previous Pop N Cute parties (Pop N Cute #1 & Pop N Cute #2), this one featured lots of cute Harajuku fashion, live music, dancing, DJs, art, sweets, pop up shops, and more!
The lineup for the Summer 2012 Pop N Cute party included: Hyper Core Fashion Show, Super Lovers Fashion Show, Harajuku Fashion Walk Fashion Show, Live painting by Haruka Kurebayashi (Kera Magazine, etc.), Kimono Styling Show by Kumamiki (Party Baby), Live painting by Machico, Live painting by Karin, DJ Choco (Panama Boy), Dancing by Shakey, Live Music by Broken Doll Ken & Sweets by Kunika.
Once again, we were lucky enough to score an invite to the party, and we brought back lots of pictures and video to share with you!
