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!
The sakura are blooming, school is starting up again, and the newest issue of Connect Magazine is here! In our April issue, two Street Fighter fans share their experiences at EVO Japan 2019, while other ALTs share tips, tricks, and personal anecdotes about running marathons, doing mixed martial arts, and hiking in Japan. Fitting the spring theme of new beginnings, one ALT reflects back on the transformative nature of the JET Programme, both for themselves and ALTs as a whole. We also have two great write-ups on folk music and the Japanese EDM scene, though if you’re wanting something more traditional, there’s also a breakdown of Japan’s doll festival and a closer look at the unique nature of Okinawan culture. Make sure not to miss out on the first spring Connect issue of 2019!
