Of Ravens and Writing Desks at Tokyo Fashion Week

When I found out that style.com was photographing the runway shows  at Tokyo Fashion Week, I was simply elated. I became even happier when I checked my email today and found out that Alice Auaa’s show was photographed.

For those of you unfamiliar with this brand, Alice Auaa is, an avant-garde gothic and Lolita fashion brand started in 1995 by Yasutaka Funakoshi. (http://tokyo-mbfashionweek.com/en/brands/views/alice%20auaa)

From what I can tell, their theme this year is Alice in Wonderland. I mean, having an Alice dress as the opening piece did drop a hint.

Another prominent theme of Alice Auaa’s clothes is deconstruction, although I don’t feel it is as prominent this season as it has been in the past. I also noticed that there was good use of hoop skirts in this show.
