TOKYO, Japan – J-Pop superstar Namie Amuro led a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially mark the opening of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo 2013 S/S (Japan Fashion Week) at Shibuya Hikarie on October 13.
“I am very honored to have been chosen as the special guest for the MBFWT opening ceremony. It was my first time ever cutting an inaugural ribbon and I was a little bit nervous, but I really enjoyed myself. I look forward to seeing Tokyo fashions gain more attention worldwide,” said Amuro.
Meanwhile, organizers of the MBFWT said that Amuro fit the bill perfectly, as she is popular not only in Japan but throughout Asia and the world, not only as a musician, but also as a fashionista. “We asked her to appear in hopes that this would provide motivation for younger creators and further vitalize their fashions, thus making this opening ceremony a reality,” they added.
