Tokyo Girls Collection is the biggest – and by far the most famous – of all of the growing number of events in Japan that combine hip fashion shows with concerts from popular musical groups. We’ve been covering Tokyo Girls Collection for years, yet its popularity never ceases to amaze. The most recent TGC event, the 2012 Spring/Summer edition, drew over 25,000 excited fashion fans to Yokohama Arena in early March.
Attending Tokyo Girls Collection is a fantastic way to keep an eye on the latest seasonal street fashion trends in Japan. Besides the fashion shows from many of the hippest Japanese “real clothing” brands, the event brings together 25,000 fashion conscious young women. If you want to see what stylish Japanese girls are wearing on the streets of Tokyo, it would be hard to imagine a better place to be than Tokyo Girls Collection.
With that in mind, we spent some time street-snapping Tokyo Girls Collection S/S 2012 attendees so that we could share their looks with you. These are not models (although some of them certainly could be), these are real Tokyo girls. We brought back 100 pictures of more than 70 people. It’s not 25,000, but it should give you an idea of current street trends. We definitely see denim trending, and there was a lot of tan/beige. Please let us know what trends you see coming for Spring in the comments at the bottom of the article.
