Bunka Fashion College: Back in Action
Bunka Fashion College Tokyo is one of the most revered fashion institutions in the world since its foundation in 1919. “All students and staff members share an immense love for fashion,” says college president Sachiko Aihara. “Our greatest achievement is that thousands of our graduates are working globally across different sectors. Despite the challenging period we’re all facing, we’ve continued to operate at a high-standard and have effectively evolved along with the times.”
After months of lockdown, schools across Japan have reopened for in person learning. Here are some of the students and the looks they chose to commemorate their return.
Bunka Fashion College was founded as a small dressmaking school in 1919 when most wore a kimono at that time. Approved as the first dressmaking school in Japan in 1923, the College has produced about 300,000 alumni, and has played a significant role in fashion education in Japan for about 100 years.
It was selected as one of the global best 25 fashion schools by “Fashionista” in 2018, the only school in Asia to have won the honor. Therefor, it gains recognition as the most prestigious fashion school in Asia.
