Curator's Profile

Misha Janette
Fashion director, journalist, "Tokyo Fashion Diary" blogger

Born and raised in the US and based in Tokyo since 2004. Named by Business of Fashion as one of "500 people shaping the global fashion industry". Turned off by the stereotypical idea of an American studying fashion in NYC, Misha opted to move far east, graduating from Tokyo's prestigious Bunka Fashion College which counts Yohji Yamamoto and Tsumori Chisato as graduates. She fell into fashion journalism upon graduation and had been lead fashion writer for The Japan Times newspaper for seven years as well as contributor to, Numero TOKYO, *wallpaper, Vogue Girl, The Guardian UK, Kyodo News and now has regular colums at magazines SOEN and AnAn, among others. As a recognized fashion expert, Misha lectures at Universities across Tokyo. She is also a sought-after fashion director who recently worked with Nicki Minaj in Japan and on costumes for her Roman Reloaded world tour as well as her mini online magazine Tokyo Mode Diaries. She chronicles the fashion scene in Tokyo and it's world influence by writing daily in her globally-lauded trilingual (English, Japanese and Chinese) fashion blog . As one of Japan's top fashion bloggers she has collaborated with VOGUE Japan, Prada, Gucci, Furla, Chloe, Valentino, Kansai Yamamoto and travels the globe for her reports. She hosts the NHK TV show "Kawaii International", has appeared in numerous international fashion magazines, and DJs at fashion events as an "it" girl.

Recommended Shop

  • Kitakore (Koenji)

    You have to come here if you are looking for something unique! Get something that would only exist in Tokyo at this shop on the fringe where young local designers gather.

  • Alcatrock (Ebisu)

    A vintage dress store selling one-of-a-kind dresses, which are rare in Japan. They carry brands, but they mainly select things based on good style. In the store, you feel as though you are somewhere abroad like a NYC dream boutique.


    You have to stop by this store,which is in a world of its own. The interior and obscure items are good enough to windowshop and leave feeling full. I’m so happy that a store like this exists in Tokyo!

  • Nicolai Bergmann Headquarters (Minami-Aoyama)

    When you enter this store, you can enjoy a fantastical and fairy tale-like atmosphere. The food is good, and it is perfect for meetings.

  • These (Nishi-Azabu)

    A library-type bar in Minami-Azabu, which has an amazing, mature and intelligent atmosphere. The delicious cocktails are made from fresh fruits that you pick out from a basket and made on the spot.

  • SOUND MUSEUM VISION (Shibuya Dogenzaka)

    This is the most exciting club to be at!! I often DJ here, and it’s a place to bump into your friends, and frequented by many people in show biz.

  • DISCO (Shibuya)

    My #1 recommended spot for nail art! Nagisa-san’s funky, artistic style has drawn international recognition, and she’s influenced many overseas nail artists as well.
