This unique Tokyo exhibition dares you to witness Anna Sui’s true colors.
Fashion is a fickle business, so creating a brand that remains relevant for over two decades and has a global following is no small feat. New York-based designer Anna Sui has reached this milestone, and to celebrate twenty years of her business in Japan, she is currently showing a special exhibition of some of her most iconic designs at Roppongi Hills.
Sui’s first runway show took place in 1991, and her first store opened in New York’s Soho district in 1992. But her real global expansion began in 1997, when she opened freestanding boutiques in Tokyo and Osaka, thanks to a distribution and sales agreement with Isetan. Ever since then, her brand has enjoyed substantial success throughout Japan, which is one of the most important markets for her globally.
20 years and counting
