All fashions Harajuku came out for Friday’s Art After Dark at the Honolulu Museum of Art. Many were worn by eventgoers strutting their best Tokyo street looks; others were on the runway for the night’s Harajuku Station fashion show.

Amy Azada of Indie Visual List curated and directed the runway show and fashion installations. My former fashion intern, Azada was inspired by Sara Oka’s Harajuku Street Style exhibit at the museum as well as her own travels to Tokyo. All the garments were designed by students and graduates of Honolulu Community College and UH Manoa. Backdrops were created by UH Manoa fine art students. You’ll find some of the looks for sale at the museum gift shop soon.
