FEATURE: The Best Japanese Street Style From TOKYO FASHION WEEK 2024 S/S! DAY THREE
Photos by Guest Collaborator TokyoFashion!
Tokyo Fashion Week day three was another busy one. We shot street snaps outside of no less than five shows, two of which featured multiple designers. Today was the "Global Fashion Collective" day where designers from Mexico, Africa, and various other countries come together to present collections one after another in a single runway show. Most of the runway shows on day three were in Omotesando and Shibuya as usual, but the final show of the night was at Tokyo's new Olympic Stadium, a beautiful wooden building in Sendagaya designed by famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.
One of today's runway shows was by a popular Filipino fashion brand, bringing out Filipino influencers as well as Misuru, a popular Japanese Harajuku model who's been living in the Philippines for part of this year. We were happy for the opportunity to see her (and to photograph her colorful hair and fashion) for the first time in several months. One of the fun things about shooting Tokyo Fashion Week is that twice a year it forces IRL contact between all of the Japanese fashion industry people who might only talk to each other via social media, email, or phone otherwise.
Guests of note who we shot today include Tokyo-based Korean makeup artist Gyutae, Japanese kawaii cyber gyaru Dede, Japanese fashion photographer/writer Rei Shito, one of Japan's top male runway models, and even Drag Race Sweden contestant Endigo.
All photos were shot by TokyoFashion exclusively for TokyoScope.
