Shiroma mon amour

Young Japanese designer Shiho Shiroma
showcased yesterday her s/s 2012 collection
in Tokyo's Midtown Hall during Japan fashion
week, the usual Nippon fashion event which 
runs through next Saturday.

Shiho Shiroma is a gifted emerging designer
born in 1981 who established her design office
four years ago before launching her own label
Shiroma” whose collection debuted on the
runway last year in Paris.

Her latest RTW collection shows lush, feminine
outfits with inventive cuts and a clever game of
draping and layering with springy skirts, tie-dyed 
flowing chiffons, abstract prints and graphic
patterns combined with sporty details such as
zippers, metal snaps and drawstrings.

Between tradition and what lies ahead, Shiroma's
woman is a contemporary heroine with the old
confident swagger of a manga character with
a penchant for draped sheer dresses.
