Frightening figures in feathered masks… where am I? At a cult gathering, like in the Eyes Wide Shut film? Close: I took the Sony Australia TV crew to h.Naoto Goth Night, a presentation of Naoto-san’s latest fashion designs (held August 28th in Harajuku).

PS: why am I wearing a maid outfit? Earlier, the TV show and I were at the Japan Cosplay Festival. I’ll have photos from that shoot (and more) coming up…

Each guest received and wore a mask, creating a dark carnival / ritual atmosphere inside. h.NAOTO designer Hirooka Naoto is a sweetheart. My coffin backpack was designed by him — hence my funny face!

Most of the onlookers arrived in their Goth-est garments. Some were dressed head-to-toe in h.NAOTO.

These Victorian ladies could star in their own fashion show. (The h.NAOTO Goth Night took place at the Heaven store in Harajuku; there are photos, maps and more here.)

The models walked up and down the long hallway, holding up numbers (which corresponded to their garments). The guests held clip-boards and wrote down notes about each coordinate.

h.NAOTO has many collections built around different motifs, such as Blood (punk) and Frill (Lolita). This runway show was all about Goth. Black, tattered tops and tiered Victorian skirts. Elaborate lace head-wraps. I’m a fan of the blue/black striped stockings and leather witch shoes.

h.NAOTO played up draping and deconstruction. Over 20 models walked, and the procession of styles held my interest until the end.

After the show, Naoto-san talked about the creation process of the latest Goth collection. His assistants brought out racks of clothing for the guests to browse and buy. In another room, there was the love of my life: free food and alcohol.

Wish you could have seen the models in motion? Above and here is an official video of the h.NAOTO catwalk. (There will also be clips in the Australian travel show, airing next year.)

Are you fond of h.NAOTO? What do you think about his latest runway show, and the Eyes Wide Shut atmosphere?
