TOKYO — Amazon is gearing up to make waves on Japan’s fashion scene.
The e-commerce giant signed on as the headline sponsor of Tokyo Fashion Week starting with the spring 2017 season. Rather than immediately making sweeping changes, Amazon used spring as an opportunity to learn from what previous sponsor Mercedes-Benz had done. Now that its second season of sponsorship starts March 20, Amazon is being bolder in its initiatives.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
