I promised to add photos from the Tokyo Girls event on October 3, and the photographer has posted several amazing shots on his blog. As you can see, there were a wide variety of fashion trends, both past and present, represented in the show!
For my outfit, I wore a 1940s red rayon dress with a white, yellow, blue. and green floral print; fully fashioned stockings, multicolored leather 40s platforms, and a multicolored telephone cord purse. I also carried a yellow and black paper parasol; as part of my performance, I tossed sticks of gum to the crowd to represent the GIs passing out candy and gum to Japanese children during the war. The music I performed to was a very catchy Japanese swing number called “Tokyo Boogie”; the other models each performed to carefully selected music that captured the essence of their fabulously-styled characters!
All in all, it was a fantastic show and I highly recommend going to a performance if you can!
