TOKYO — Spring is universally recognized as the season of rebirth, and that concept rings especially true for this city’s designers, who are presenting their collections this week.
The March 11 tsunami disaster forced Tokyo fashion week organizers to cancel the fall-winter edition out of safety concerns and a desire to conserve power amidst an energy shortage. Some brands forged ahead with fashion shows and presentations but many local labels wrote off the season. Now they are staging their comeback and they are doing so as fashion week organizers revamp the event’s format in league with new corporate sponsor Mercedes-Benz.
