(NEW YORK) Street style blogs are full of Japanese (or Japanese-inspired) fashion—whether it’s Lolita, Gothic Lolita, or Tokyo Girls style. But rarely do the looks make it to the New York runways. However, on February 19, the Fashion Institute of Technology will bring Far East style to Manhattan with a Tokyo Fashion Festa. This fashion show, which will include live and filmed musical performances, will feature catwalk showings by brands like Alice and the Pirates, Amy’s Love, Angelic Pretty, Baby the Stars Shine Bright, Black Peace Now, Mielette Tautou and Madame-Killer.
Performances throughout the fashion show will include duo VY, comprising visual-kei singer MOA and DJ/VJ Rio, a five-minute film clip featuring visual-kei idol singers Hangry & Angry, and a short film by Indivisual, Japan. “The Tokyo fashion scene is very exciting,” said Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at FIT. “Japanese subculture and street styles, such as the Gothic Lolita look, are attracting more and more attention in the West, so we wanted to be sure to include them in The Museum at FIT’s upcoming exhibition, Japan Fashion Now, which opens on September 17. In the meantime, we’re delighted to give New Yorkers a preview with a live fashion show.”
