From the Japan Society website :

In conjunction with Japan Society’s current Edo Pop exhibition, "Fashion Fast Forward: Japanese Art Goes POP" gives an insider's look into contemporary fashion, design and street culture inspired by Japanese art through the millennia. Host Tiffany Godoy (widely recognized as a global expert on Japanese street fashion; author of Style Deficit Disorder: Harajuku Street Fashion—Tokyo ; and an editor and columnist for such publications as The New York Times , V , Style.com, and Vogue Japan ) talks to Tokyo-based unisex label DRESSED/UNDRESSED founders Takeshi Kitazawa and Emiko Sato about their designs, inspiration and process. 

 Post-talk, the party moves to the one-night-only Edo Pop Lounge, which features specials on Japanese beer and Tokyo-born, NYC-based DJ Ansoni spinning in the midst of a live fashion presentation. No stranger to the interwoven worlds of music and accouterment, Ansoni has performed at numerous shows and parties for big names like Vivienne Tam, Comme Des Garcons, Maison Kitsune, and Uniqlo.



Admission includes:
    •    Free entrance to Edo Pop: The Graphic Impact of Japanese Prints
    •    A live DJ set by Ansoni
    •    Cash bar with $5 Japanese beer specials

TICKETS
$20/$15, Japan Society members, students & seniors (includes exhibition admission)
