Frankly, I have never heard of Somarta before seeing it on the Tokyo Fashion Week schedule. Since I had a pretty light first day of Tokyo Fashion Week, I braved the rain to witness Somarta's enchanting presentation at Seibu Shibuya. Queuing for almost twenty minutes just to see a show was not exactly my cup of tea. But believe me it was worth it. Somarta's surreal collection brought back memories of my childhood past. My eerie fantasies of fairies, nymphs, warriors, princesses and other celestial creatures all came to life.
The workmanship exhibited at the presentation is simply beyond compare. No wonder even Lady Gaga is swooning over Somarta's couture wearable art pieces.
