TFR is over. But check out TFR's owner new project for this year
Willa 2010

WILLA is the new thematic party run by Gallermic, the creator of TFR and Narziß, two regular events that grew into an unparalleled mediatic tour de force inside of the world of fashion and art, due to an exuberant visual and intellectual attack against mainstream culture in the Japanese society and in the globalized world. Taking into account this background, Willa is the ultimate sophisticated scenario to present Gallermic’s authentic reflections about life, the world, the human being, the good and the evil, the culture, the art scene, and most of all an excuse to show Galle’s exuberant ability to love. The objective of the party is to generate love and communication through a universal symbolism that reaches everybody’s heart. As Galle declares: “Willa is a party for the good flowers”.

日本語\\\\WILLA は、ファッションとアートの世界に偉大な功績を残した二つのパーティー、TFRとNarzißの創設者、Gallermicによる新しいパーティーである。日本社会とグローバライズ化された世界の主流のカルチャーに対する、圧倒的な視覚体験と知性による反撃を意図して開催されて来た。こうした背景を鑑み、WILLAは、Gallermicにとっての日常、世界、人類、善と悪、カルチャー、アートシーン、そしてとりわけGalleの愛についての表象を、究極に洗練された物語として送り届ける。このパーティーの目的は、すべての人々の心に届く普遍的な象徴を通して、愛とコミュニケーションを慈しみ、育むことにある。Galleの言葉を借りれば、「WILLAは善き花々へのパーティーである」。

~> Dec 12 (fri) 10P Narziß Celebrating *Ciao For Now. And Deep Throat to You All!* at Trump Room, Shibuya.

Next Narziß is the last Narziß, our last party: an erotic fantastic farewell. We are saying bye-bye after 21 parties: it's like the magical 7 x 3, the number of the perfection by excellence and of the individuality according to the numerology. For us is inhuman and perfect: like a triangle. For how extraordinary have We been all this time, after all... It’s arousing: Ciao for now. And deep throat to you all!

P.s. We don't want to be uncouth (but we want to be called uncouth), BUT this is the last party, the last photos, and the last chance to represent your groovy self... and there is NO turning back!

Interview in Enlgish:
DAZED: Could you tell me about the party that you are organizing right now? (The name of the party / When did you start having it? / How often are you having it? Etc… Give me the details!)
TFR: The name of the party is NarziB. Basically, NarziB is held every other week at Tokyo's most stylish spaces. We started the party from March 8th 2008.

DAZED: After establishing the party "TFR", you started having another party called "NarziB", what are the conceptual differences between those two? Also, what are the unite concepts?
TFR: TFR is a web magazine critiquing fashion, art and club culture in Tokyo. What differentiates TFR from other media is that we clarify our position and criteria on the issues we cover. The party we organized under the name of TFR was supposed to be the manifestation of our opinion. Therefore, we attempted to represent it through our fashion, the title of each party, flyer and everything. Basically, the concept of TFR parties were rather political and aggressive (ex. anti-globalization). We believe that TFR is something like a visual guerrilla trying to attack the mainstream culture. On the other hand, NarziB is a side project of TFR. Compared with TFR, NarziB doesn't necessarily intend to represent an opinion. It is merely for fun and networking. To us, there seemed like in Tokyo the so-called "community" is virtually non-existent. We want NarziB to be a cultural community for beautiful and individual people. We don't play loud music in NarziB. We want our guests to talk and know each other. NarziB is not fashion-oriented. A wide variety of people with different background are welcomed. As a matter of fact, our guests range from cultural figures like a film actor and an art curator to bohemian homeless. At the same time, NarziB is devoted to beauty. We have dress code for each party and the poor-dressed will not be admitted.

DAZED: Who writes the manifest for the parties?
TFR: Gallermic Mabuse

DAZED: How do you select DJs? Do you have a guideline for it?
TFR: We think there is a ridiculous overvaluation of the DJ nowadays. Specially in Tokyo, the Dj culture has reach the limit of idolatry, to become a Dj is the last burst of the ambition of the club kids. But why? It is like for Japanese there wouldnt be other way to be a star. And we consider that Dj ambition a misery of personality, lack of talent, and the worst tragedy of the parties along with Rave. Therefore, We are not music oriented. We want our visitors to get excited by interaction with beautiful people, to create community, icons and gossips. We rather select our guest Dj's by their cultural background and their beauty, and we called them the oldfashioned way: "selectors". Sometimes we dont even know who is gonna dj next party, we just improvised. Nevertheless, our music selection is rich. A wide range of classical, jazz, gypsy, global grooves, house, auld lang syne and cinephiliac music.

DAZED:What was the start of taking party snaps?
TFR: Just recording our memories.

DAZED: What/which kind of moment would you like to capture when you take photos?
TFR: Whenever as long as the subject is beautiful.

DAZED: What do you think about Tokyo party scene? How do you like to be placed in?
TFR: We don't really know what kind of parties are going on in Tokyo. We don't want to take ourselves within the context of Tokyo or anywhere on the earth. We prefer being regarded as a metaphysical concept without being restricted by biased idea, the name of a city or a country would possibly give.

DAZED: Could you tell me about the fashion style of the TFR guests? Do you have a special dress code?
TFR: Dress code = Individuality. Nothing is more important.

DAZED: Tell me about the concept of the exhibition you had this year, "POST NO FUTURE" at hiromiyoshii gallery.
TFR: Fashion is hentai. We can not help the association between something as superficial and hedonistic as fashion and the mere sexual pleasure full stop. Therefore, for us, a fashion personae who is not a hentai, it is an impostor, a traitor, an alienated puritan in disguise following trends who might just finish his days without a notion of personal style nor fashion itself. Fashion can be zoophiliac, necrophiliac, paediophiliac, dendrophiliac...all the paraphilias. And this can sound as obscene as fascinating, but most of all we are just trying to give an idea of the precariety of fashion these days. We spread fashion in all senses, and are here only to encourage creativity in personal hentalism.

DAZED: Do you have any plans to start up a new project?
TFR: Travel report by TFR's half Naokoula who is in a world round trip right now. And UBUROI, a fashion label for people who likes concepts like NarziB.

Thanks Dazed&Confused

english\\\\What is recorded here is not necessarily our experience. It can be an absolute fiction all made up in our head, or as a matter of possibility, something we MIGHT have experienced, or perhaps something we DID experience but in some other place or time. We have two kinds of journeys at the same time: the outward and inward. Our outward journey is governed by the clock and the budget, but inward one ignores the boundaries of place and time. The journey is not linear.It is always back and forth. And it is what we want to record, leaving us free from the time and the physical distance. Here, we deny the calender. We deny the map...

we are a space of FREEDOM, FRESHNESS and ESCAPISM. from this perspective, we are one of the very FEW ORIGINAL MEDIA -and definitely the one that has the MOST TENACIOUS and CRITICAL OPINION- related to the 'WORLD OF FASHION'. yes, world we belong to, but also world we find abhorrent because it's representing the most visible side of the pseudo-well-being [CONSUMERISM], that behind glamourous SMOKE SCREENS [generally starred by 'MODELS' and 'POP STARS'], and making use of the so-called 'TRENDS', spreads the most recalcitrant STEREOTYPES of CAPITALISM and its just-apparent GLOBALIZATION... at THEFASHIONRAMONE [a.k.a TFR] you will find, then, the best alternative in fashion design and counterculture!!!!!

Skirts For Men / Faldas Para Hombres

(English Version At The Bottom)
Muchos la ridiculizan, para la mayoría es 'gracias a Dios' inconcebible. Sólo los fanáticos más atrevidos se la ponen y a nosotros, que nos van tan bien los heresiarcas, unirnos a su causa es un *fashionable* ajuste de cuentas. !Faldas para hombres! O liberación sexual masculina...
...O sea, no es ninguna novedad. Pero la disyuntiva moral que produce ver en faldas a un hombre hecho y derecho (y también a los no tan derechos) en nuestros tiempos, debería sobrepasar a rajatabla lo trivialmente prendario para convertirse en un precepto de liberación sexual...masculina, sí, 'MASCULINA'. Zafándonos de antecedentes y de historia -porque simplemente nos ha tratado mal-, ¿por qué tendríamos que seguir haciendo caso a esta convención tan demostradoramente mutilante? Hace medio siglo que las mujeres pueden elegir entre faldas y pantalones; y prácticamente nosotros seguimos jugando nuestro papel de toda la vida en la historia de la vestimenta. Pero las cosas están cambiando, y felizmente, de la mano de los diseñadores de moda más interesantes del planeta. Sarah Kuratle es el nombre de la abanderada de esta causa revolucionaria. Desde 1996 maneja Amok, 'faldas para hombres', con más de 40 creaciones que van desde las duras denim hasta las clásicas elegantes/ejecutivas, así como modelos trendy-techno. Y sus diseños no admiten suspicacias de amaneramiento: como hecha para los inexorables escépticos. Ella en Suiza; en Tokyo hace poco lo hizo la *fashion brand* hermana de los underground, Device... Y en definitiva, en el mundo entero la tendencia de holgura en las prendas masculinas va tomando, de a pocos, la forma de una confortable falda para nuestras piernas... Voila! Sarah debe estar contenta. Las cosas cambian, y al fin y al cabo, ante los glamourosos ojos de Dios todos somos divinamente iguales.
Gallermic Tanaka
Skirts ForMen (English Version)
Some people criticize it, and the majority says 'thanks God it's inconceivable'. Only the bold dare to wear them and, having a biased affinity toward heretics, it's just *supernatural* that we join their fashionable cause. Skirts for men! Or male sexual revolution...
...Granted, this is nothing new. But the moral contradictions that, even in present times, are provoked by contemplating a rugged man (or a not so rugged for that matter) in a skirt, should overwhelmingly trascend the prêt-à-porter concept into a male sexual revolution. Yes, MALE. Getting rid of pre-conceived notions and history - because we have simply been mistreated- why should we keep perpetuating this evidently mutilating standard? For half a century women have been able to choose between skirts or trousers... Meanwhile, we keep playing our everlasting role in the history of clothing. But, you can't hold back the winds of change, and in this particular case, they are being fortunately controlled by the designers of the planet's most interesting fashion. Sarah Kuratle is the name of the flagwoman of this revolutionary cause. She is the driving force behind Amok, "skirts for men" since 1996, with more than 40 creations that range from rough denim to the classic elegant/executive, as well as trendy-techno skirt styles. and their designs will not accept unmasculine undertones: as if created for the inexorable skeptics. While she established this in Switzerland, Tokyo was recently enlightened by Device, the fashion brand that is sister to the underground... And so around the world, loose trends in men's apparel are, little by little, taking the shape of a comfortable skirt for our legs...Voila! Sarah must be happy. Things change, and in the end, we are all the same before God's glamourous eyes.

I wanted to comment how much i'm enjoying your blog. Very interesting vay to have an underground street smart view/opinion of Tokyo trends and the fashion scene. I would also like to know more about this group, Vivians. I find their music hauntingly seductive, it evokes that old school arousing sound of The Doors, but in an updated manner with current grunge, rock, trends. Very refreshing sound. Two thumbs up.

Les voy a decir algo: NO soy gay ni nada por el estilo, pero para los hombres seria una gran comodidad usar faldas... Pero como esta la sociedad ahora es un gran dilema ponerse una... Ademas los aretes, botas, faldas y collares los inventamos nosotros los hombres en el siglo XVI con Carlos V de España... No seria un dilema ponerse una falda... Si aceptaron tan bien los aretes para los hombres, pueden acptar las faldas.. No lo creen asi??? Les escribí desde Panamá...

Desde los origenes al hombre se le coloco una tunicay no hay razon para qe los varones no sean ORIGINALES, es lomas practico, comodo respetuoso y decoroso que se puede usar en cambio de utilizar esos pantlones que son MUY INSINUANTES al exhibicionismoy porende a la promiscuidad por esa razon las dams ahora se ven tan afectadas de que las esten acosando, aun por la calle pero como se la pasan mostrando, no falta el indecente que les toque la cola y les fastidie con su busto, hay comas mucho mas lindas y valiosas que mostrar de la mujer y no solo su cuerpo, pero parece que a ninguna le interesa pronuciarse. la myoria participan muy activamente cuando de mostrar el cuerpo se trata, y aun entre ellas misma aveces hablan obcenidades, refierindose a su cuerpo. ojala se pronucien mas drasticamente y cambien de actitud
