I`m going to be popping into NANIWA next Friday for a special event–!!! and..can ya guess where that is? Think kuidaore, think takoyaki, think …NANDEYANNEN!
Yep, gonna be chillin’ in Osaka…. this time, as a special guest of Osaka-based brand ROGGYKEI to celebrate the 1st anniversary of their shop and atelier. It’s gonna be a crazy bash with a few special guests and surprises including a fashion show and performance by COL KID GAGA. Oh, and I`ll be DJ-ing too, of course!
Col Kid Gaga
Roggykei is a brand that I hold a special place in my heart for because it goes against the grain of the sweet, cute, vintage and soft trend and goes straight into the future with dark, sleek, avantgarde designs. Perhaps it helps they are far removed from the Tokyo tide down in Osaka…
I wore an outfit during fashion week and it ended up in FRUiTS magazine (my debut! I am shocked it happened in Roggykei and not some more “Harajuku”-ish style!! It’s kind of rad this way…)
And those cage bracelets? Totally got some for myself. Here’s another Roggykei doozy. Love these designs!
I can’t wait to be in Osaka and spilling Osaka-ben everywhere like I spill my drinks. Osaka fashion is what inspired me to move to Japan to study fashion in the first place, and I know there is a community of rad brands down there. So if you’re in Kinki come out to play at Explosion (but not too hard, you know there’s that “anti-dancing” law in effect in osaka… I feel like I`m living “Footloose”!
