Johan Ku Spring 2012

TOKYO – While Johan Ku started off as a graphic designer, he created his own design studio in 2005 and by 2007, he was participating in Hong Kong Fashion Week. For Spring/Summer 2012, Johan Ku presented a collection at Mercedes Benz Tokyo Fashion Week called “The Two Faces.” The pieces look a certain way in the light but change as they glow in the dark. Lights flashed as the show began and a model paraded to the middle of the floor where she turned in a circle to let the audience have a good look as the lights dimmed and her garment took on a whole new appearance. This is not the first show to present glow-in-the-dark pieces at Tokyo Fashion Week. Etw.Vonnegut also showcased something similar. A new Tokyo trend, perhaps?
