Finally after “a little” break Stephen Jones license is back to Japan, with AURORA company this time, and it had its lovely launch at British Embassy in Tokyo – with dress code: “Hats Essential”, of course!! Lucky us [read: me and some of my friends] were invited to this event on Stephen`s behalf. All dressed in hats we enjoyed it much mingling with the crowd and… the hats – from aw2013 collection as well as some of the designer`s iconic pieces; and of course with Stephen Jones himself as the main guest.
I was very lucky to meet Stephen on few occasions during his this time visit in Tokyo – apparently it is easier to see him here than in London. All about it soon, after the Golden Week Fever fades away.
