Last night we attended the first annual Japan Fashion Week in New York event where emerging Japanese designers showed looks from their Spring 2009 collections. For some designers, like Hidenobu Yasui, it was their first time ever being in New York, while other designers, like tiny dinosaur, only recently landed here thanks to the efforts of Opening Ceremony. The event helped establish a stronger bond between fashion in New York and Japan which, with any luck, will only continue to grow.
