From New York to Milan, from Paris to Tokyo... It's filled with busy people, camera moments, networking, clothes, fashion, style, flashes... It's really crazy and, I can say this now that I've experienced it, really cool. For the longest time, I've been planning my return to Tokyo and when I finally had everything I needed, I found out that Fashion Week Tokyo would be happening during my time there. I couldn't miss it.

When you're a blogger, the purpose of going to Fashion Week is kind of tricky. I'm not a buyer for a department store, I'm not an editor and I, most definitely, can't afford to buy the pieces I'm seeing on the runway. So, what's the real purpose of the blogger going to Fashion Week? Well, entertainment and networking. You end up meeting tons of people, chatting, planning collaborations. You mingle with photographers, models, designers, editors, bloggers. You meet everyone. 

So far, I can say that Fashion Week Tokyo has been incredibly fun and it gave me the chance to meet new people and make new friends in Japan. I came here not knowing what to expect, just with a suitcase filled with clothes from H&M to wear, and I ended up having really cool opportunities. It's something that I would definitely like to do again. These photos capture some of that and I want to thank the super talented Finnish photographer Janita Autio for creating them. Collaborating with others is the true future of fashion, you'll see that, I promise.

// Para algunas personas, Fashion Week es una de las semanas más importantes (si no es que la más importante) del año. De Nueva York a Milán, de París a Tokyo... Está llena de gente ocupada, momentos de fotografía, relaciones, ropa, moda, estilo, flashes... Es una locura y, puedo decir esto ahora que lo he vivido, es increíble. Por muchísimo tiempo, estuve planeando mi regreso a Tokyo y cuando por fin tuve todo lo que necesitaba, descubrí que Fashion Week Tokyo estaría sucediendo durante mi estancia allá. No me lo podía perder.

Cuando eres blogger, el propósito de ir a Fashion Week es complicado. No soy comprador para una tienda departamental, no soy editor y, definitivamente, no puedo costear las piezas que estoy viendo en la pasarela. Entonces, ¿cuál es el verdadero propósito de un blogger en Fashion Week? Entretenimiento y relaciones, por supuesto. Terminas conociendo muchísima gente, platicando, armando colaboraciones. Te juntas con fotógrafos, modelos, diseñadores, editores, bloggers. Conoces a todo mundo.

Hasta ahora, puedo decir que Fashion Week Tokyo ha sido increíblemente divertido y me ha dado la oportunidad de conocer nuevas personas y hacer nuevos amigos en Japón. Vine aquí sin saber qué esperar, sólo con una maleta llena de ropa de H&M para usar, y terminé teniendo oportunidades padrísimas. Es algo que me encantaría hacer otra vez. Estas fotos capturan algo de eso y quiero agradecerle a Janita Autio, una fotógrafa finlandesa muy talentosa, por crearlas. Colaborar con los demás es el verdadero futuro de la moda, ya lo verán, se los prometo.
