Designer Daily: Cosmic Wonder Light Source

Edited by

In an intensely stunning study of light, Yukinori Maeda has been manipulating, translating and presenting the concept artistically as Cosmic Wonder out of Tokyo since 1997. In 2007, the wondering team began focusing the light on clothing, and how light affects weaving, and also how they can make the entire process light on the environment. Believing that a fashionable lifestyle should encompass admiring and supporting artistic practices that cause no harm to the earth, they “reflect natural beauty in the finished pieces.” COSMIC WONDER Light Source plays with light on the surface of their designs, fading plaids, and creating emanating stars from printed textures.

Nick Wooster Projects Japanese Fashion

Edited by

The general badass that has dictated the men’s style of Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, has a Tumblr dedicated to him (not by him) called Fuck Yeah Nick Wooster, and garners a Google image search that goes on impeccably for days. Nick Wooster recently curated his trade show PROJECT Wooster in Las Vegas with some the most innovative designers from here and across the world.  Nick Wooster went to Tokyo with PROJECT President Andrew Pollard to absorb the savvy street style, meet designers that are best in their class, collaborate, consult, and introduce them to American buyers. We think of this today as we recall the earthquake that ravaged Japan a year ago, and supporting talented companies that fuel their industry is the chicest, and frankly coolest way to help. And through this video, we get to go to Tokyo with them.

FASHION SCRAMBLE: Alex White Out, Edward Enninful In at W + The Japanese Fashion Show Must Go On + Prince Harry, Royal Party Animal

Edited by

- W‘s longtime fashion and style editor, Alex White, is leaving the mag to pursue her own projects — possibly including an online magazine — but fear not, fellow obsessive editorial lovers! Vogue contributing editor Edward Enninful — whose recent work includes the stunning “The Blackallure” for Vogue Italia — will take her place starting May 1. White has been with W since 1994 and has helped ease what has been a slightly rocky transition from the Patrick McCarthy to Stefano Tonchi era. According to both White and Tonchi, however, the split is amicable and mutually agreed upon. [WWD]

Edited by

Though Paris may be the epitome of high fashion, Tokyo has stuck a chopstick in the realm of fast-fashion with it’s biannual Tokyo Girls Collection. TGC is Fashion Week  meets Comic-Con, with over 20,000 attendees forking over as much as 7500 yen ($91.59 — at least the dollar is worth something somewhere) to be part of the action. As models strut down the runway during the 7-hour event, participants can buy the fashions using their cell phones while enjoying J-pop performances peppered throughout the day. And for the first time in TGC’s six year history, the event will be live-streamed.
