For the ones who have never heard of it before, Tokyo Girls Collection is a fashion show held two times per year in Tokyo. It’s so popular that 25 000 tickets got sold out within hours, mostly because it’s a street fashion show and the clothes are usually modeled by celebrities, not by professional models.
This spring’s theme was “Sherbet Garden” and there were around 20 Japanese brands featured (Liz Lisa, Lovedrose, One way, Duras, etc) and also Avril Lavigne’s brand, Abbey Down. Celebrities spotted were Anna Tsuchiya, Kyary, Tsubasa and the Korean pop singer Kara. Let’s move on to my most liked and disliked pieces~
~TGC Special Collection~
Anna Tsuchiya (if I’m not mistaken), showing off a sexy red suit. Definitely a hit!
I can’t figure out if that is a shirt or a dress, but I like its pattern and shape. Plus the jacket is lovely.
Same dilemma, but I think it’s a shirt. Cute and feminine, perfect for spring.
I don’t think Liz Lisa will ever fail in bringing out the little girl with a princess complex in me. Love love love is all I can say.
Simple and sexy, what could you ask more?
I was pleasantly surprised by this collection. To be honest I’ve never been giving Duras much attention, but it took me a while to decide on which outfit to pick from their collection. Anyway, later is always better than never!
I really like the sewn details on the margins of this dress.
I’ve always found such outfits pretty messy looking, but there’s something about this one that makes me want to wear it!
Cute! Although I’d ditch the hat and that use a small, white leather purse instead, or a straw purse.
I’ve never heard about this brand before, but I’m really glad I did now. Their collection is elegant and feminine, perfect for summer dates.
My love this season: Asymmetrical skirts and dresses! I don’t agree with the belt, though.
Yet another brand I haven’t heard of before but I’m glad I discovered it. Simple yet fabulous outfits, perfect for summertime.
I was surprised at first upon seeing this pretty much odd collection in between the girly, flowy and cute outfits. But not in a bad way, since they’re in the hits category. Later I realized this is Lavigne’s collection. Well done, girl!
I tried and tried and tried, but I couldn’t find a decent outfit in this whole collection. I assume their theme was cheerleaders but this collection screams cheapleaders to me. It would be hypocritical of me to say that anything that reveals skin is cheap because I am wearing a see though black shirt as I’m typing this, but showing skin has a limit too. I don’t think this is the kind of image young women should strive for.
Even the fabrics look cheap to me, the colours don’t match, everything is a mess here! And those shoes, oh God.
Something I didn’t like at Khaju’s Collection. I love the skirt, but I don’t thing that shirt and vest looks good with it, maybe it’s just me. Too many different fabrics and colours.
Another collection I couldn’t find anything to suit my tastes. Not as disappointed as with Phebely, but this outfits are, first of all, unflattering to pretty much any body type, then ugly.
Like really, what is this? Would you wear such a skirt?
Individually, the pieces are pretty nice, but they don’t make a whole. The outfit is way too cluttered.
At first I though those were jeans under the dress, which would be a big no, but then as I looked closer I realized they were thigh high jeans boots, which is a huge NO!
That was it. A lovely show, all in all. I wish I could’ve been there : ( Thank you Tokyofashion.com for the pictures and thank you, beautiful reader, for reading! Don’t forget to rate if you liked it!
