Dress Camp 2010-11 A/W Collection
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 Thursday March 25th, Dress Camp showed its 2010-2011 Autumn/Winter collection at Roppongi Hills.
Dress Camp was founded in 2002 by Japanese designer Toshikazu Iwaya. A graduate of Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo, Iwaya worked with At One from 1995 to 2002 printing textiles before moving on to design under his own label. Dress Camp showed in the Tokyo Collections in the Spring/Summer 2003 season. In 2004, Iwaya won the 22nd Mainichi Fashion Award Newcomer Prize along with the prestigious Chandon New Designer Award. In 2005, the first Dress Camp shop opened in Aoyama.
In fall of 2008, Iwaya left Dress Camp and Marjan Pejoski – the Macedonian-born, London-based designer who created Bjork’s famous swan dress – took the helm. Pejoski completed study in womenswear at Central St. Martins school of Art and Design in 1999, and started designing under his own name. He is a favorite among celebrities, including Lady Gaga. His Dress Camp designs have thus far been well-received by fashion critics and Dress Camp fans.
The Dress Camp collection shown today at Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo featured both menswear and womenswear. Please click the pictures below to see high resolution versions.
