I swear, one of these days I will fly my butt over to Japan to attend one of the Tokyo Girls Collection fashion show! What I love about TGC is the variety of clothes they display, the accessibility and affordability of the items and how it is not like your typical runway; the models are happy and energetic and the atmosphere is like you're at a concert. This season's TGC theme was "Smile for _____," the ____ is for you to fill in and the concept behind the theme was to help those ravaged by the earthquake and tsunami back in March to regain some courage.
Here are some Fall/Winter trends that I took note of and some of my favorite outfits from the show!
Plaid is still a must have this season, the classic Brawny man look gets another season to update!
Colors for fall: Red-Orange and Mustard hues, these warm, rich shades reflect the beautiful changing colors of the leaves
A timeless print, Polka Dots aren't just black and white anymore!
The must have animal print this season would have to be Leopard, you can go bold with a fur coat or subtle with a leopard printed shoe or scarf, whatever you choose it would go great with anything as long as it has that neutral camel tone.
Lace can bring a girl from prim and proper to sexy and scandalous; what kind of lacy girl are you?

Ever since watching Korean drama Secret Garden, I have been obsessed with finding the perfect Cape Coat, and I have...and they're in Japan -__-
It's not a Autumn/Winter collection without some fabulous Furs
[It isn't TGC without an appearance from model Jonte Moaning!]
Almost every collection at this show had girls in Colorful Tights in every color of the rainbow:
