FashionTV brings you the latest fashion news from Tokyo! We first spot model Ai Tominaga outside a building collecting money for the Japanese earthquake relief effort. The Asian superstar is very well known for her charity work. She recently held a photo exhibition which she titled, I, Tominaga. “The reason I held this exhibition was “Sakura movement” which I was doing on Twitter,” the model said, “After the earthquake is the time when the Sakura movement blooms in Japan and I was really looking forward to it. And at the same time, I felt so down because I was seeing all the disastrous news. But the feeling for Sakura cheered me up.” She started this movement to cheer up the victims of the earthquake. Ai Tominaga encouraged people to upload pictures of sakura, or cherry blossoms, to their Twitter page and tweet the hashtag #sakuramovement. She had the opportunity to put all the pictures she collected on to one giant picture of a cherry blossom tree and is now having a photo exhibition to showcase this giant picture some of her work, and some of the best photographers of Japan including Leslie Kee, Mina Ninagawa, and Tisch. The exhibit is on display at Gyre in Harajuku. “By making a Sakura pictures exhibition, I realized that the 13 years of my career I have not only made it by myself,” she explains.

G-Star Raw recently took its new collection to New York Fashion Week Fall 2011. G-Star Raw’s collection is modern outwear that’s functional, but elegant. It’s this type of combination that gives G-Star Raw its style. “The collection is called Metropolitan Explorer and it’s inspired by the metropolitan explorers of the 1920s,” said Women Denim Designer Rebekka Bach. We saw a lot of the denim that G-Star Raw is known for mixed with the fabrics of the 1920s. “This represents very well G-Star’s philosophy of forbidden or unexpected fabrics,” says Global Brand Director Shubhankar Ray. Later, guests in the front row like model Kiko Mizuhara and actress Gemma Arterton comment on the collection.

Appearances: Ai Tominaga (Model), Rebekka Bach (Women Denim Designer), Shubhankar Ray (Global Brand Director), Joris Aperghis (Chief Marketing Officer), Gemma Arterton (Actress), Kiko Mizuhara (Model), Mika Ninagawa (Photographer), Jared Leto (Actor/Singer), Rosario Dawson (Actress)
