The After Party at Le Baron de Paris, Aoyama
Tomoya and Diego!
Iraqi born, and living in London since her teens. Reem Alasadi has approached the fashion scene with her somewhat unquenchable drive and passion for design. Her creations always have their own unique signature to them, a personality of their own that seems to enhance the wearer.Reems clothes manage to always be a delightful combination of rarified costume exuberance and cool urban uniform. She is the intelligent choice on planet fashion.
Since 2005, Reem has showed as part of Tokyo Fashion week, a collaboration with the cool department store Laforet in the heart of Harajuku. Each show packed to capacity, and drawing in press from Vogue Nippon to Numero, Dazed Japan etc.
2009 At London Fashion week Reem broke all the rules and sign-posted a revolutionary new way of showing, working and selling a fashion collection by combining two seasons on one runway. Breaking the mould of the staid and frankly outmoded (and rather quaint and outmoded) Fashion tradition of Spring Summer/Autumn winter Reem was able to show both seasons at the same time. This was ground breaking and the first time this has ever happened.
Exclusive opening of REEM at Laforet, Harajuku showing the 2011 SS/AW Collection “INTRAPMENT” ! I met the designer herself, Reem Alasadi. Reworking antique looks is her signature style.
DJ VERBAL of AMBUSH DESIGN Mademoiselle Yulia
From Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith, and Dior to H&M, Zara, Uniqlo and the cheap stuff you can buy on the street in Shibuya and Harajuku. The designer’s flea market was fun. The sales ladies/salesmen were actually models and djs like Mademoiselle Yulia, DJ Verbal and Yoon. After purchasing clothes, shoes and accessories, you can get them to sign your stuff and have the chance to mingle with them. The prices were affordable so it was totally worth every penny.
The flea market finished around 11. They had an amazing after party that night. Used designer brands and flea markets are really huge in Tokyo. Everyone does it, from celebs to commoners! It’s one of my favorite pastimes in Tokyo. Sometimes you will find really good stuff, really cheap – all you need is a little patience.
