TOKYO — Japan Fashion Week came to a close on Saturday after six-and-a-half days of runway shows and related events, registering a substantial jump in the number of attendees.
Attendance figures for the Tokyo shows grew at a double-digit clip compared to a year ago, although, unlike previous seasons, there were several periphery events and parties, some of which were open to the public. The fall-winter shows in March were canceled after the tsunami disaster.
