Tokyo inspiration



After so called 3/11, the explosion of the nuclear reactors caused by an earthquake, Tokyo gained a new awareness. We can be curious if there will be changes in the future.
The host of the documentary Tokyo Rising Pharell Williams visits accompanied by local artists, fashion designers, musicians and other creative people remarkable places of Tokyo. He shows a great hidden store and japanese fashion, a product of taking up foreign cultures and forming something new, also a well known jewellery designer and It-girl from Tokyo, see more here or visit the fan blog mademoiselleyulia.tumblr.com. Other interesting Tokyo blogs are for example tokyobling.wordpress.com or japanesestreets.com. Now I'm very curious about Tokyo and would like to travel and see this creative place.
On top it was Tokyo Fashion Week right now! Some fashion shows I picked (A Degree Fahrenheit and Shiroma) you can find here and here. I had the feeling the style and mood, in contrast to the Harajuku trend, is more dark and industrial - it is possibly a metaphoric reference to the dramatic case in march.
