Tokyo Fashion Week will unveil the brand’s first presentation in over three years
Yoshikimono – the innovative kimono fashion brand by Japanese rock star YOSHIKI – has been chosen for the prestigious opening spot at Rakuten Fashion Week Tokyo 2020 S/S, to be held Monday, October 14, 2019.
YOSHIKI presented Yoshikimono’s 2016 collection to close Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo, and his 2017 collection was invited to open Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo. The latest Yoshikimono collection is the first presentation in three years from the brand which has gained international attention for its avant-garde designs and modern cultural impact.
YOSHIKI – composer, classically trained pianist, rock drummer, and leader of the rock group X JAPAN – was the first Japanese male to appear on the cover of Vogue Japan and gave a special performance at “Vogue Fashion’s Night Out 2017.” In 2018, YOSHIKI was chosen as the sole model for the launch of Yves Saint Laurent‘s YSL Beauty Hotel in Tokyo, making headlines as a male model in a ladies’ cosmetics demonstration by YSL’s beauty director Tom Pecheux, leading to the products selling out nationwide the next day.
For this month’s fashion week opener, YOSHIKI is promising an even more stunning production which will be a highlight for fashion industry leaders and worldwide media. Just hours after the event, YOSHIKI will headline the Dream Festival, celebrating TV Asahi’s 60th Anniversary, one of the biggest festivals in Japan presented by the producers of Music Station.
