Recently during Japan’s fashion week I had the pleasure of attending the Shibuya Fashion Festival. It was quite a fun night and there was a lot to see including some amazing runway shows.
My favorite part was running in to the guys behind Exist. I’ve followed this small handmade leather goods company for a few years now through their blog and other sources but running across the pop-up shop they had at the festival was pure chance. Being able to actually inspect the items in person I am even more enamoured by their creations as the quality is superb. They were gracious enough to allow me to photograph their set up and even the designer himself. They also photographed me wearing a few of the creations - maybe it will come up on their blog in the future. It was very nice meeting the fellows behind the company and as always I am eagerly awaiting their newest work.
