"You know a Tokyo Gamine ensemble when you see one: It is utterly original, unlike anything else on the runway or street. It’s whimsical, painterly and saturated with rich jewel colors like red, green, and fuchsia, frequently offset by shimmering gold. The label’s gowns, coats and rompers are walking, wearable art. And the artist is Uehara, who founded Tokyo Gamine and has grown it into a force of nature in just a few short years. Uehara’s creations have been worn at the Oscars, SFFILM Awards Night, the Opera Ball and the SF Ballet Gala. Next stop: World domination?"
