Tokyo: Cancellation of Japan Fashion Week

 

-More shocking news from Tokyo and it´s fashion industry-


Obviously there is no necessity of a Fashion Week in Japan right now, consequently the Fashion Shows were canceled.
Who ever mainly thinks of buying cloth and shopping during I time like this, where your country is suffering from such a natural disaster as has striked Japan last week, must have a really sick and twisted way. But still, as I worked at the Japan Fashion Week last year and everything was ok… normal and now… companies like H&M, Chanel and PPR have been reported to move employees south, because even though the fears of a big recession in Japan are huge, safety goes first. So it happens to be that, people get to see what was extremely unimaginable in the country of working ants- many stores in the capital remain closed, as for example Asics, which derives one third of its revenue in Japan.
Japan is the third-largest world economy, naturally this is going to have an huge impact, as it consequently will on the global economy too. We will see how strong that impact is going to be and what is going to happen- but with strong will and discipline (which no other society has as the Japs have) everything is going to be rebuilt and organized again!

May the love and strength be with all the people and families suffering during this hard time!!!!! You are in my prayers, my beloved friends and Japanese family…
