※ A JOURNEY TO FUKUOKA
Tokyo is well-known for being so-called Japan’s Fashion Capital. But, after a random encounter with the TEDx Talk speaker Yuri Ojika, we ended up travelling to a lovely Japenese city we never heard about, “FUKUOKA”. FUKUOKA is a new trend–laboratory and real open stage for designers and startups of all kinds. The best thing about Fukuoka fashion is its unpredictability and its uniqueness because it arises from its combination of different cultures. This city is home to an abundance of apparel shops and a large number of fashion enthusiasts. The local fashion scene produces brands with unique ethical and sustainable approaches… There is an unhurried quality to Fukuoka! Interestingly enough, when asked about the differences between Tokyo and Fukuoka fashion, designer Keisuke Ueno explained that, as opposed to Harajuku or Shibuya, in Fukuoka, « Its originality is having no originality... »
※ FUKUOKA’S SUSTAINABLE GEMS
Feedelon decided to show the unicity of Fukuoka’s fashion scene. Thus, Feedelon presented the sustainable gems found in the streets of Fukuoka, that may change your vision about fashion and accessories:
