Tokyo Fashion Week 2016: Winners and losers

A new edition of Tokyo Fashion Weeks 2016 has been released, but we have to admit, the winners are a bit disappointing. 

This year’s list was released on Sunday by fashion house Kiyosuka, and it’s all about the same for the fashion-forward, the fashion conscious, the stylish, and the stylish-minded. 

We have a winner and a loser in each category, and we can’t disagree with them.
