The most extraordinary styles at Tokyo Fashion Week (PHOTOS)
Tokyo Fashion Week (March 14 – 19) is one of the world's most recognised and influential extravaganzas of style. It's daring, it's edgy, and at times it's utterly bizarre. Here are some of the most extraordinary outfits so far.
The most compelling pieces come from Japanese designer Yoshikazu Yamagata, who uses prosthetics to make models look like mutants, cats or birds.
But Yamagata's collection was far from the only one with compelling, if eccentric, themes. Designer Keisuke Yoshida lent glamour to the tracksuit:
Hiroko Koshino played with interesting shapes and textures:
Photography duo Tokyo Wolves likewise found beauty in the bizarre:
Designer Motohiro Tanji takes the old-school form of knitting and makes it into something totally new.
And why not put wire mesh on models while they walk, per the style of designer Ryota Murakami?
The street style around Tokyo Fashion Week is just as amazing. People have tended to go for bright colours and bold statements.
Altogether, it's been a lively, extraordinary week for fashion.
