Breaking: Yoshiki of X Japan to open Amazon Tokyo Fashion Week Spring 2017

A knockout closing act at Tokyo Fashion Week Spring 2016, who delighted fans and fashionistas alike with his one-of-a kind rock and roll twist on a traditional kimono collection, Yoshiki of X Japan is back for the Spring 2017 season at Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo. Once again showing his Yoshikimono pieces, the musician-artist-fashion designer will be also giving a special musical performance on Monday October 17. 

I am very honored to be given an opportunity to open this prestigious fashion week. ‘What defines fashion? What defines art?’ is a question I ask myself daily. In the midst of such chaos, I want to showcase what I think is the answer..." - Yoshiki
