On March 31, Japan’s fashion and entertainment industry celebrated the 20th anniversary of the film “K-On” with a special fashion show at Tokyo’s Saitama Metropolitan Government Complex.
The event was the brainchild of “Katsu” fashion designer and producer Toshihiko Tanaka and his partner Toshiyuki Nishimura, who took the lead role in developing the event.
The fashion show, which featured performances by a variety of Japanese streetwear artists, drew over 3,500 fans from across the country, including celebrities like singer and actor Atsushi Takahashi and actor Kazuya Sugita.
The show also featured collaborations between Tanaka and Nishimura with the artists T-ara, and G-Dragon.
“The Katsu Show has always been my dream to work in the fashion industry, and to be a part of this event was a dream come true,” Nishimura said.
“We have created something unique in this event and I hope it continues for many years to come.
It’s the kind of event where a big group of people can come together and share ideas and experiences, as well as celebrate the art and creativity of Japanese fashion.”
While Tanaka and the rest of the Katsu team have been busy developing “Kon” since it was first released in Japan in 1997, they haven’t missed an opportunity to showcase their work.

“We were so excited to work on this event with the collaboration of our partner Toshihiro Tanaka and friends,” Nishihara said.
“I think the collaboration with Toshihihiro and friends will be a big success for the Konsai brand,” Nishida added.
“It will also be a chance for the community to come together to share our passion and look forward to seeing more of their work.”
Nishimura and Tanaka have also been working on a new collaboration with the Japanese fashion house T.T.E., which is also the owner of Saitamadai.
The company is planning a show for March 2017.
In addition to his work as a designer and performer, Nishimura is also a graduate of the prestigious Osaka University of Art.
