From the girls who dress like cutesy Sailor Moons to the Victorian-inspired gothic Lolita look, Tokyo is a fashion mecca where new trends spread like wildfire to the masses (thanks, Ms. Stefani). Tokyo! Look! celebrates the very best of Tokyo’s unique fashions of the past and present. First, a panel discussion on the cultural significance of Japanese fashion with speakers including Yuniya Kawamura (professor of sociology, Fashion Institute of Technology), Dan Bailey (co-founder, Tokyo Dandy), and Nicole Michalek (senior designer at Nylon magazine). At 8, stay for the party with a fashion show, music by DJ Ansoni, and a make-up showcase. Kawaii!
