Description: Join in for an insider's look into contemporary fashion/design/street culture inspired by Japanese art through the millennia. Like the tastemaker merchants and artisans who shaped ukiyo-e culture, consider how populist fashion blogs and "street kids" influence the upper echelons of high fashion. Longtime Tokyo resident Tiffany Godoy, fashion editor and author of Style Deficit Disorder: Harajuku Street Fashion—Tokyo, interviews international fashion directors and designers. Mingle with models and fashion-world denizens at a reception that will feature a live DJ set and presentation.
