The Shiroma Spring 2013 line came under the microscope of style writers and grunge enthusiasts at the 2012 Mercedes-Benz Tokyo Fashion Week showing. The designer kicked off her career in the public limelight in 2010 when her pieces were displayed at Parisian exhibitions.
Shiroma's magnificent patterns have all been spearheaded by the label's founder. Production is however done separately at a sewing factory, leading to the same dual merchandising concept that has become so central to contemporary collections.
Standing in stark contrast to the conventional manufacturing processes is this Spring 2013 show's hairstyles. Messy pompadours loom above the heads of the models, echoing the appearances of punky rock groups and the rebellious allure of bands like the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
