Tokyo Girls Collection 2010 A/W – Music & Highlights
Tokyo Girls Collection 2010 A/W edition took place this last week at Saitama Super Arena. 30,000 young Japanese women packed the venue for a chance to check out the latest fashion trends, watch Japanese celebrities and musicians perform and model, and, of course, to shop! We’ve already posted our main report on Tokyo Girls Collection with 150 photos from the catwalk, but we’ve got even more for you.
In addition to the normal TGC catwalk shows – where popular and up-and-coming Japanese fashion brands showed off their latest Fall styles – there were also special presentations and performers. Attendees were treated to a performance by the unbelievably popular girl group AKB48, a stage show called the “Kitson Circus” presented by the Los Angeles fashion brand Kitson, and amazing fashion and fun by the model/dancer Jonte (who has worked with Beyonce and Janet Jackson) for La PARLER.
Other Tokyo Girls Collection highlights included the Michael Jackson-channeling stage show by Japanese denim brand GOTTO3, the debut appearance of the Japanese womenswear brand Lovedrose, and the TGC Grand Finale where all of the models came out on the stage together. Please check out all of the music and highlights below and don’t forget that you can click on any of the pictures to see high resolution versions.
