Tokyo Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008

This is an exciting week in fashion as Tokyo unveils their Autumn/Winter collections for 2008.  Unlike many other countries, Japan’s Fashion Week is organized by the Japanese government along with the private sector to bring international awareness to this countries talented fashion design community.

Many well known Japanese designers such as Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo and Jun Takashi of Undercover are well known names worldwide.  However, these designers no longer show in Tokyo.  Instead, they have moved their collections to Paris for greater recognition.

JFW started on Monday with 4 shows under it’s belt with a total of  45 brands set for exhibition.

Here are some highlights of Monday’s shows.
