After Japan fashion week cames to a close, one of the seven shows on the catwalk was from Hidenobu Yasui who is a so-called "U-turner". Yasui spend time in London learning fashion and returned for his first show in Japan. The collection is "Where is The Truth?" The fashions were crossing the line between skirts, dresses and suits.

“I don't use kimonos and other traditional Japanese fabric to
express tradition. Instead, I add my own Japanese interpretation of Western
clothing to create a new tradition,” said Yasui after the show.

Implications - Today's increasingly globalized world is one that sees more cultural crossovers than ever before, and as a result, fashion that heavily relies upon hybridized aesthetics may be something that forward-thinking fashion companies must be ready to embrace.
