The good thing about living in a smallish city..

..is that it's easy to find the "fashion people" and make friends with them.

Sendai has an amazing underground fashion scene and so many people who make their own pieces.

Everyone seems to know everyone, so every once in a while the people from the cool hair salons hook up with the people from the hip boutiques who get in touch with the top DJs etc.

Then they call their favourite white girl, Miruku! ;)

This fashion show was held in a small nightclub and it had a really intimate feel.

The theme was something like "Fairytale Wedding" and it's very haute couture, only to be worn by the bravest of the brave!

We were all grooving to the DJs, then just sat down where ever we were to watch the fashion show, so the shots aren't great...oh well!

Starting with a dark bride.

I love the details!

The Indecisive Groom

The main event starts with Pirorin, who used to work at my salon. The girl has the most amazing fashion sense I've ever seen.

Part of the show was Kanabu (my favourite assistant stylist <3 ) arranging her hair.

Then she removed her cloak and the groom reappeared.

Another bride, lucky guy...


Then we partied until morning!

Thanks for helping me out on Twitter everyone, I'm beginning to get the hang of it now.

Also, I said I'd do a giveaway when I hit 50 followers, now I'm over 70.

I'm sorry, I'm awful. Thanks for following and I'll get cracking on the giveaway this weekend, cross my heart!
