Bear Festival, Taiwan.
The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City is displaying an exhibit called Japan Fashion Now. It sounds like lots of fun with attention to designer, street, sub-culture and cosplay fashions. Plus photos of street fashion. One of the photography contributors is Kjeld Duits, whose website Japanese Streets includes images of men’s and women’s fashion (see above for men’s). There’s also Tokyo street photos by Gannet Design. The Yale University catalog includes curator Valerie Steele’s essay, “Is Japan Still the Future?” Thanks to my mom for tipping me off to this exhibit.
