There's a wave of store closures washing over the grid. It's always sad to see both familiar and unfamiliar names make their announcements. I'm hoping that, in the other end, there are as many new names opening their doors for the first time.
For some creators, happily, closing down is just the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. This is fortunately, for us, the case with Kayami Osakki (Kayashi Piers), who's closing the door to fashion and taking her talents down other creative paths.
Consequently, Osakki is having it's last fashion sale, until 14 February, with some of her stuff available for seriously slashed prices. Her avantgarde outfits, the Kurai collection, are out for 100L a piece and other things, like the Grid Python Necklaces are going for 45L. An opportunity to experiment!
