Awesome article Iris.
I think the japanese sims are filled with treasures and it deserves all the attention it can get. Way to go

I love the coverage of the Japanese designers!!! It is great to see different stuff than what we normally see! They will be getting some of my business when I look for new clothes!

Excellent article Iris and inspiration for us all.

Nice work! Think you spent so many time to gather and write about these contents. Hope fashion things go over ther border of language.
Ah there are some point you better mention. Advertizing to worldwide is not much difficult for non-English speakers, but They feel huge stress from customer support, especially dealing with claim (ya, dealing with angry peoples need advanced communicating skill). Maybe there would be "Bridge" person (or company) needed...

Dear,Iris Ophelia!
I am very glad that you wrote this blog.
I want to say that I thank you.

We are different in both the words and the culture.
I think that it is a thing with the very big meaning even that you were pleased with our making.
In addition you introduced these by your words.
You gave big chance and hope to us.
I thank you so much, as to be able to hardly express it all.

I want you to continue to introduce a lot of creators waiting for a chance all over the world as well as Japan, with your sense.

Wow, another awesome set of reviews.

I'd love to see bigger versions of those pics, if possible, Iris!

A wonderful series, Iris. I'm so amazed by the quality of the items you've displayed (I was already in love with Zero Point, but the rest are new to me), as well as your commitment to quality and completeness in the write-up.

The pictures in question are currently at the bottom of that jumbled little page.
