For the final day of Tokyo Fashion Week, I decided to incorporate my own design into my look. Sometimes the perfect piece to assemble your look just doesn't exist, and you have to make it yourself. That was the case with the pants.

I'm a huge fan of Thai fisherman's pants... But they are very informal and made from light fabric. I wanted a pair made from a heavier fabric, that could be worn for more formal occasions, and in cooler weather. I also wanted to have long slits, almost up to the waist, that would reveal the shiny underside of the satin fabric, and contrasting leggings or tights underneath. I made the pants with a spiral cut to achieve the look, and cause the right amount of "reveal" as I walk. I took advantage of the fact that fisherman's pants fold the top down, to create a "cummerbund" effect with the shiny side of the fabric. (Now, I know that the owner of Black Milk doesn't really like or want men wearing his products, but that's just too bad). Lol! They had an AWESOME pair of black leggings with roses that I thought would look great with my design.

A scarlet red shirt, with silver accessories for the top, with an imitation leather jacket by Uniqlo, and John Fluevog's badass men's Prince George 4" slanted heel boots. For contrast, I did my nails with OPI "You Gotta Get This Blue" stamped with Konad plate M63.

As for the event, it was really fun! In the heart of Shibuya, there were all kinds of events, displays, crafts, food stalls, and at least three fashion shows throughout the course of the day, and into the evening! It was a great way to wrap up Tokyo Fashion Week and allow the public who normally don't have access to the runway shows, to see several in one day!
