The president of Iron Heart, Haraki-san and the IH Japan crew Tomoko-chan, Sarina-chan, Ono-san together with Giles and Paula Padmore were there to share with all the people and Iron Heart fans. The evening started with a warm feeling, bikers showed up and parked their machines, guests started to come up slowly and a relaxed atmosphere began to encircle everybody.
Many pictures were taken, a Haraki-san signature berserk of Iron Heart products, chats about denim and overall an absolute feeling of camaraderie and love for that beautiful fabric. As everybody knows, we at DC4 stock the bigger Japanese brands selection in Europe and to confirm that, we had between our guests representatives from many premium Japanese denim brands, retailers and publications.
Events like this one shows that we are still on top of the wave in what refers to Japanese denim and garments. We are so happy and thankful to each person who helped to make from this evening a truly favorable outcome.
