SAKURA COLLECTION 2017-2018 (English)


Hoshokai Special Noh workshop ×SAKURA COLLECTION

 On Thursday, 1st March 2018, the Nohgakudoh stage will play host to the Grand Prix collection from the Sakura Collection Student Award held across 5 countries in Asia, and a refreshing repertoire created from original Japanese fabric and dyes by eminent designers from various Asian countries.

An amalgamation of oriental beauty and the majestic art of Noh - embodied by the Grand Prix collection

 This year, budding designers from the Sakura Collection Asian Students Awards held in Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia will bring to you their Japanese-themed, original designs. In an effort to encourage international cultural exchange, the Sakura Collection 2017-2017 Final Event will welcome representatives from the 5 countries on 1st March 2018 - a culmination of growing interest and participation from universities and vocational schools across Asia.

 This year, the show will be staged on the renowned Hosho Nohgakudoh, the pinnacle of Noh in Japan. Our models from all over Asia will be dressed in oriental designs and strutting down the runway in traditional tabi (Japanese traditional socks, usually worn with the kimono) in an impressionable mix of cultural beauty.

Collaborative discovery of the infinite possibilities of Japanese fabric + A Noh Workshop!

This event also brings together popular designers from 6 countries in Asia, whose designs bring out the flavor of Japanese textiles; you will experience this alongside the traditional Japanese art form of Noh, accompanied by an informative session on the relationship between the intricacies of Noh garments and Asian history.

The main organizers of this event are various entities committed to civilian-led activities related to Japan and Asia, beginning with the NPO ZESDA (Zipangu Economic System Design Association). Our organizers are deeply involved in promoting Japan's traditions, art and culture, and are also active ambassadors of international cultural exchange.

We hope that you will be able to savor the taste of Japan's traditional Noh as well as fashion, emboldened by the tinge of various other Southeast Asian characteristics, in this precious time and space like never before.
