From the Press release:
By combining traditional and modern styles and breaking away from conventional trends, the youth of Japan have blazed a fashion movement. Adding their own creative touches by mixing old with the new while customizing and combining the homemade with designer labels, their look result in the unexpected and avant-garde and in turn created a truly diverse subculture. Art-inspired fashions and fashion-inspired art is one of the most creative symbiotic relationships of our generation.
