Japanese Fashion Labels to Look Out For at 'Hello, Shibuya Tokyo'

17 February 2013

By Natalie White

At the upcoming 'Hello, Shibuya Tokyo Fashion and Culture Mix Show with Singapore', fashion and art aficionados can immerse themselves in this subculture directly imported from the cool streets of Shibuya, Tokyo.

The fashion and cultural event featuring a mix of both Japanese and local artistry will take place from 22 February to 10 March 2013.

As one of Asia’s most vibrant places, Shibuya’s uniqueness stems from the diverse cultures and styles that coexist in Tokyo. Japanese design labels including ANDREALAGE, JUN OKAMOTO, KEITA MARUYAMA, Yasutoshi Ezumi, motonari ono and more will be showcasing their Spring Summer 2013 collections.

Venue Design by Makoto Tanijiri
Architect Makoto Tanijiri has been tasked with designing the event space at the Atrium of Plaza Singapura, saying "I didn't simply want the space to be separated into booths for each brand, but to have a more organic flow. The main feature in this space design will be the hangar - used in different shapes and sizes - which won't be physical dividers but more as a spatial partition."

There will be no walls but each fashion label will be allowed an organic space to showcase products in order that people can see everything in a bright environment.
