The Photos of Fashion Week: Highlights and Behind the Scenes
Mercedes-Benz Tokyo Fashion Week is a huge event. We covered an overview of the week in our May issue, and featured some extra interviews with designers last week. If you wish you had been there, and are hungry for more details and photos, you’ve come to the right place! Our two fashion-focused Connect editors ‘only’ made it to about 50 shows, but they brought plenty of pictures and impressions with them. Click through the slideshows below, and see Verity and Erica’s thoughts and summaries in the collapsible day-by-day sections. Enjoy!
As May dawns, we’re now well into springtime in Japan. The cherry blossoms might be fading, but you can relive those petal-filled moments by reading the stories of ALTs experiencing their first hanami across the country, or attending unique festivals ranging from big and famous to small and local. Another article reminds us that sakura aren’t the only beautiful seasonal flowers worth checking out. Apart from the beautiful nature of the season, spring is the perfect time to reinvigorate your hobbies. We also have articles on moviegoing, street fashion, and cooking, as well as writeups on returning to old JET placements and some insights into the LGBTQ experience in Japan. There’s all this and more in the newest issue of Connect. Enjoy!
