TOKYO GIRLS COLLECTION in Fukushima 2014

The TOKYO GIRLS COLLECTION, the largest fashion event showcasing street wear, was held for the first time in the Tohoku region on April 29. Fukushima official and business concerns helped organize the event. Local companies, designers and fashion students had a lot to say. Let's cheer up Fukushima through sports fashion! The manufacturer of a sportswear brand based in Koriyama had many employees whose families were hit by the disaster. The company came forward as the event's main sponsor, proposing sporty fashion to the people who avoided playing outdoor sports.

  • Yumi Katsura presents her latest collection made with Fukushima's high technology. The designer started providing support to the disaster-struck areas soon after the earthquake. At TGC, she presents a wedding gown that weighs only 600 grams. Called Fairy Silk, it is the thinnest silk in the world. The material is made of Kawamata silk, which is produced in Fukushima
  • Students attending a local fashion school took part in TGC as fitters working behind the stage. We focused on one of these local girls, who is an aspiring designer.
