Taiwanese brand Seivson showcased a “THANK YOU JAPAN WE ARE FROM TAIWAN” shirt during Tokyo Fashion Week, receiving praise and applause from Taiwanese and Japanese fans alike.
Seivson debuted the design during the six-day fashion week, which spanned from Aug. 30 to Sep. 4, to thank Japan for their generosity during the past year, donating over 3.3 million vaccines.
The shirt is part of their new 2022 spring collection, and though designer Shen Tzu-chin (申子芹) could not be there in person, she made sure her gratitude toward Japan was expressed loud and clear on the runway.
According to Seivson’s Instagram post, the T-shirt was featured to thank Japan as well as let the world see Taiwan; the shirt is, therefore, not for sale.
The collection, titled “MISTERMISS,” showcased Seivson’s creativity in its futuristic designs, marking numerous highlights for the brand.
The design was lauded by Japanese local media as well, while Taiwanese social media users commented that they were moved by the gesture.
Seivson is a local brand created by South Korean celebrity Emily Song (宋米秦) and designer Shen Tzu-chin, who named it by combining the French word for “us” (nos) which represented the two women and “life” (vies).
