Last weekend, Tokyo Girls Collection invaded the Saitama Super Arena. Over 30,000 fashion-conscious Japanese women (and a few guys, too) oohed and aahed over the latest looks from their favorite fashion brands, cheered on their favorite models and celebs, and helped keep the Japanese economy strong via frenzied shopping on their mobile phones! We’ve already showed you street snaps from outside of the event, as well as the catwalk fashion shows. Now it’s time to take a look at the music and other entertainment at Tokyo Girls Collection 2011 A/W.

Tokyo Girls Collection 2011 Grand Finale

For the Autumn/Winter TGC, the musical entertainment was provided by K-pop girl group T-ara (who also modeled for the brand Serene), Da Pump’s Issa with Japanese rapper SoulJa, Naoto Inti Raymi, singer-songwriter Yui, and J-pop threesome Ramwire.

Non-musical entertainment included a performance by Cirque du Soleil ZED on the FamilyMart stage and Korean actor Park Hae Jin hosting a charity auction. The cast of Japanese variety television show Picaru no Teiri brought the laughs. The event closed with the always-amazing TGC Grand Finale, where models and celebrities from all of the day’s shows come together on the stage for one last bow before exhausted-but-still-cheering fans.
