For the fashion show photos→MRラフォーレ原宿 in CHICAGO

2015年5月26日 | and just before the beginning–

IMG_0569

‘Once upon a time there was a prince’— AKIRA was the prince in our show and all models were dressed up as princesses in the fashion show, and beautiful princesses indeed they are. Our prince in the show is a woman and our princesses are women, we are all for  woman’s empowerment and equality so our princesses are a celebration of strength of mind and of beauty.

2015年5月25日 | Mika Takeuchi & AKIRA in ACen Chicago

IMG_0549

 

Just before the fashion show and live of AKIRA and Mika Takeuchi in Acen Chicago.
Designer Mika Takeuchi with AKIRA.
o.k., we have to admit back stage is not glamour at it finest moment but there is a certain charm in the whirlwind of preparations. Perhaps the contrast itself to what will be presented in a while on the stage, though I have to admit that Akira and Mika looks quite relaxed considering I’ve just talked of storms…

IMG_0576

 

Mai is with Danielle here, one more last touch…doesn’t she look gorgeous, tough moment with the hands but a lace up that have to be tied is a lace up that have to be tied, one does not fight with a lace up! (and this is a good word of advice from us that have lace up laced in their dreams..)

IMG_0579

Tina is having her hair done, she look already so cool. Her hair colour and the blue & black dress seems to be a perfect match. Thank you for the pink Tina, and of course for the hair and make up artist.

IMG_0575

Mika Takeuchi is arranging/re-arranging Madeline which also arrange her sleeve so there is a lot of re-arranging in this photo, we like it as it capture the spirit of pre-show time. Madeline looks really good in the wine-red and black and look at that beautiful braid. For that indeed we will raise our glasses, red wine indeed.

IMG_0578

Tiffany, the head of hair&make up team for the fashion show and live (Thank you Tiffany!) is here with Megan. All models wear only part of their outfits when under ‘the knife’ of the make up and hair artists.. Megan seems a bit tense (the hands, the hands) but she give herself completely to Tiffany.

this photo doesn’t need words..

and here just a big thank you to every one!

2014年12月1日 | Laforet X’MAS PARTY!!

Hey girls! How are you doing today!
I hope you are doing well xx

Today I want to introduce and talk about a couple of things so the blog maybe a little long… Just a heads up!

Let’s get started!
First I obviously want to start out with our new item! Well more like a winter coordination 🙂

imagejpeg-3

Mixed with MR and Tranquil & muse coordination, has a touch of gothic classy look but it is tone down into a causal style coordination!
The top is a high neck top with sheering around the neck and shoulders!

imagejpeg-4
It also has a slight print so it’s great to use as a inner piece under a one piece!
The mannequin is also wearing a red burgundy color stole with pearls!

Processed with Moldiv
Sanochan is actually wearing the same dress as the mannequin but has arranged it with a hat and lacy inner top! Such a cute combination! 🙂

Now I want to move on to the chocolate exhibition!

…. I know right. Just my luck! so when I heard about this I was like I have to go so I went to go check it out!

Processed with Moldiv
The whole space smelt like chocolate… Like chocolate everything ! This is my kind of heaven haha
Have you guys ever seen the movie chocolat? If you haven’t it’s a really cute movie but every time I watch that movie makes me want to eat chocolate… So if you ever decide to watch this movie just make sure you have a bar next to you lol I promise you will need it! Haha

Oh and I want to talk about Laforet Christmas Party on December 5th! This is a invitation only event and starts from 19:00 PM!
So if you happen to be in Japan and want to check it out please come by to the store! 🙂
Customers who purchase will get an MR original X’mas cupcake! So if you have time please come by and check it out!
