After the “Big Four” fashion marathon, Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo 2019 S/S will kick off Monday with 51 brands, including 20 first-time participants and 10 foreign brands, showcasing their latest collections.
New names, including Afterhomework, Ottolinger, A.W.A.K.E, as well as promising emerging labels like Marine Serre, Victoria/Tomas, Anrealage and Koché, made for an electrifying opening to the Paris season on Tuesday.
Fat ladies tend to be thin on the ground on the Paris catwalk. But rising Dutch designer Liselore Frowijn made her inspired ready-to-wear debut Tuesday with a colourful collection to light up autumn-winter.
While it may not boast the big names that draw the international press to Milan, Paris, New York and London, Tokyo Fashion Week has long enjoyed a reputation as a springboard for up-and-coming young designers.
