TOKYO — This city’s fashion week capped its seven-day run Saturday, showcasing a tamer, more conservative range of fashion that stands to profit from a newly weak yen.
Designers appeared to take a more guarded — and arguably more commercial — approach this season, turning out more clothing in black and neutrals and largely eschewing the over-the-top pieces and runway antics of past seasons. Pastel colors, fur and embellished coats were just a few of the trends that emerged during the week. RELATED STORY: Japan Fashion Week, the Trends >>

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
