What is the Tokyo Girls Collection?

Since starting in August 2005, under the banner "Taking Japanese Girls Culture to the Rest of the World," this massive fashion festival has been held twice a year. Around 100 popular, distinctive Japanese models have appeared at the event, and starting with a fashion show that displays Japanese "real clothes," there is a huge range of attractions inside that are unique to TGC, such as live music from top artists, a special stage featuring some of the most in-demand guests, as well as booths where visitors can "touch and try" different items that are currently popular. The show has also garnered attention both domestically and from abroad, as it also operates as an E-commerce event, giving guests the chance to buy the clothes that the models are wearing on their mobile devices!
