Yu Yamada in Asia's Biggest Fashion Festas
The March 3 (Saturday), 2013 saw the 16th instalment of what has become Japan, and Asia's biggest and brightest fashion festas — 30,000 plus young women in the late teen to early 30s age range packed into one of Japan's most iconic stadia — the Tokyo Olympic "Yoyogi Gymnasium."

With the action kicking off with a performance by the hugely popular Namuro Amie — a household name for almost 20 years the stage was set.

Many of Japan's most popular models including Yu Yamada, Lena Fujii, and Karina donned the outfits of a number of the nation's off the peg brands as seen in the weekly and monthly fashion mags.

Yamada in particular drew wild applause early on when appearing in her short at the front, long at the back one-piece, Fujii later on in her perfect-for-summer flower-pattern mini-dress with matching parasol (pictured).

Throughout the Spring / Summer theme was evident with patterned dresses, bags for the beach, and skin aplenty as numerous brands and scores of Japanese and foreign born models took to the runway, not least Korean star Youn-Ha (pictured in full length green print backless dress).

Highlights of the six-hour extravaganza in addition to the Amuro performance centered on the appearance of one of the nation's most popular boy-bands - Exile - albeit in junior version, as well as brief appearances by comedienne Naomi Watanabe and a number of other well known TV entertainers.

Here's to TGC 17 - expected to take place in September.

The writer, Mark Buckton, a Tokyo-based freelancing journalist, contributes his articles to a number of world's noted newspapers including The Seoul Times.
