TOKYO — Japan’s largest fashion event wrapped its six-day run last Saturday with a full day of shows by the winners of the Tokyo Fashion Award, among others. While buyers were somewhat tepid about the overall quality of the week’s collections, there were bright spots among the emerging brands.
This season saw 59 brands participate in Tokyo Fashion Week, the most ever. It also drew a greater number of registered buyers and media representatives than the previous two seasons.

This season the At Tokyo brands were Mame Kurogouchi, Ambush, TTT_MSW and Neighborhood.

(Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
