Motonari Ono 2010-11 A/W Collection
The 10th Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo is in progress, and each day TokyoFashion.com’s contributors are reporting back from runway shows going on all over town. On Wednesday March 24th, Japanese designer Motonari Ono presented his 2010-2011 Autumn/Winter collection at roomsLINK in Roppongi Hills.
Motonari Ono graduated from Mejiro Design School in 2002. He then spent one year at the London College of Fashion Foundation, and enrolled in the Royal College of Fine Art in Antwerp with plans for furthering his education in fashion. These plans were interrupted by a job offer from London-based label Bora Aksu, where he spent two years as chief pattern maker before returning to Tokyo in 2006 to start his eponymous label. He’s best known for his womenswear collection. He likes high hemlines, interesting collars, and monochromatic palettes marked with occasional splashes of bright color.
