It’s widely known that Japan is at the forefront of fashion trends. Designers such as David Neville and Marcus Wainwright of Rag & Bone, Tadashi Shoji, and, of course, Gwen Stefani often visit Asia for inspiration. But you don’t have to fly overseas to witness the latest trends. Fashion Fast Forward: Japanese Art Goes POP, part of Japan Society’s exhibition “Edo Pop: The Graphic Impact of Japanese Prints,” is a look into contemporary fashion, design, and street culture inspired by Japanese art. Tiffany Godoy (author of Style Deficit Disorder: Harajuku Street Fashion) hosts tonight’s talk with Takeshi Kitazawa and Emiko Sato, founders of the Tokyo-based unisex label DRESSED/UNDRESSED. After the discussion, they’ll present a mini-fashion show, while DJ Ansoni spins in the special one-night-only Edo Pop Lounge. Dress code is graffiti glam; extra points for outlandish hair.
