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, popular Japanese fashion brand fur fur showed its 2010-2011 Autumn/Winter collection at LaForet Museum Harajuku.
Named after creator Aya Furuhashi, fur fur began in 2005 under the name FUR. The label was first centered around “action painting and handmade creation”. It broadened focus in 2006, when it was launched as an independent fashion brand. The name was changed to fur fur in 2008. Furuhashi’s designs are very feminine and Japanese, often embodying mori girl and vintage aesthetics – as you can see clearly in the new collection pictures below.
