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.
