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...

english\\\\JAPANESE DON'T USE THEIR FREEDOM. It's not that we believe that a perfect place exists on the Earth. But if there is something close to it, it is the subculture -the space where we can find that and those who we are looking for-, or specifically that type of independent, free, countercultural, philosophic and bold community. Lamentably, it is in this sense of subculture /community where we bump into the weakest and most demoralizing point of Japanese society.

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!!!!!

January Fashion Tale

(Versión En Español Abajo)
Another perfectly banal day was reaching to the end, just like any other january day, in an equatorial city of south america called Trujillo. Emi was wearing her lovely rat-colour jersey, and her petticoat-layered-kilt touching her toes was so very wrinkled, just as wrinkled as her way of seeing her world. Decided to wear the extraordinary retro-futuristic MOD 60's little low heels, the critical shoe-wear maze was being forgotten. Forgotten as well as the humiliation, trauma and sorrow suffered 5 days and 14 hours ago... Saved by the quintessence of her great style, she left her house with the beautiful and majestic face of dignity.
Five minutes for revenge. Emi realized it was about time to unfold her camera and use the Batman made plastic masquerade. Unbearable Sir Gerardo's boulevard was deserted and dark. In the faraway the Andine Ethnofuturistics parade was getting closer to him singing a holyday religious Huayno, and Emi startedshooting with no hesitate.
* * * * * * * *
...One week later, the Unbearable Sir Gerardo's murder perpetrated by the Andine Ethnofuturistics was being big news in all mass media, specially in the most mindblowing fashion magazines from all over the world. Rumors about Emi becoming millionarie with the rights of each picture started spreading over. The originally reason -business adjustments- was no longer worth of any importance at all; the excessive supernatural realism (even magical worth saying), the original and super-new andine ethnofuturism as a concept in fashion and the fervent gore of the images had delighted and enchanted men and women of our very postmodern century.
In the end, nobody wanted to put the Andine Ethnofuturistics on jail; instead, with a blink of an eye, identic supermodels appeared in Tokyo, who created their brand with that style, imperialisticly developed then on for dozens years.
In the end, nobody had a thought about Unbearable Sir Gerardo's death, nobody even asked for justice, mercy or moral reaction. Postmodern men and women of that time were tired already of such a coward and pathetic kind of thing, Sir Gerardo's kind of image was no longer tolerated.
In the end, Emi's naïf declarations as a witness of the murder were no questioned by anybody and she was asked and taken to Tokyo by the supermodels right after the declarations were over, to freeze through pictures their first advertising campaign.
In those Postmodern times, the process ended up forgotten. Nothing but images were worth to remember. Only the end was what called people attention. Nothing but the product ended up gaining people's eyes.

January Fashion Tale (Versión En Español)
Se extinguía un día completamente banal, como cualquier otro día de enero, en una cálida ciudad del hemisferio sur americano llamada Trujillo. Emi tenía puesto su adorado jersey de color rata, y su kilt con enaguas que le llegaba hasta los tobillos estaba arrugadísimo, de la misma manera en que ella percibía su mundo. Atrás había quedado la tormentosa encrucijada del calzado, al decidirse categóricamente por su extraordinario par de taconcillos retrofuturistas de los MOD 60's. Atrás habían quedado, también, la humillación, el trauma y el desconsuelo sufridos hace 5 días y 14 horas... Salvada en la quintaesencia de su gran estilo, salió de la casa con el semblante bello y profundo de la dignidad.
Faltaban 5 minutos para la venganza. Emi atinó a que era tiempo de sacar la cámara y de colocarse el antifaz de plástico hecho por Batman. La calle de Don Gerardo el Insufrible estaba oscura y desierta. Cuando Emi se percató bien, la comparsa de los Etnofuturistas Andinos ya se acercaba a él cantando un Huayno de festiva religiosidad... Empezó a disparar.
* * * * * * *
... Una semana después, las fotos del asesinato de Don Gerardo el Insufrible perpetrado por los Etnofuturistas Andinos causaron un furor histórico en los medios de comunicación, y especialmente en las revistas de moda más alucinantes en el mundo entero. Hay quienes aseguran que Emi se convirtió en millonaria por los derechos de publicación de cada foto. Las imágenes, de realismo excesivamente supernatural (que más parecía mágico), de etnofuturismo andino como concepto original en la moda, y de pasión Gore acometida salvajemente por un ajuste de cuentas cuyo motivo ya no le importaba a nadie, habían maravillado a hombres y mujeres de los tiempos posmodernos de nuestra existencia.
Al final, a nadie le interesó apresar a los Etnofuturistas Andinos; de la noche a la mañana en Tokyo aparecieron unos supermodelos idénticos a éstos, que inmediatamente crearon su firma con aquel estilo, el cual se propaló por docenas de años imperialmente.
Al final, a nadie se le ocurrió proclamar ni pésame ni moralidad ni justicia ni misericordia por la espeluznante muerte de Don Gerardo el Insufrible, ya que además tenía fama de patán y de cobarde, y en aquellos tiempos posmodernos los hombres y las mujeres no toleraban más ese tipo de malas famas.
Al final, nadie puso en tela de juicio las ingenuas declaraciones de Emi como testigo presencial y casual del homicidio, y más bien, los supermodelos de Tokyo se la llevaron después del interrogatorio directamente para que fotografiara su primera campaña publicitaria.
En aquellos tiempos posmodernos, todo lo del medio quedaba en el olvido. No se recordaban otras cosas más que las imágenes. Y lo único que le interesaba a la gente era el final.

Definiivamente me considero un autista de la moda, aunque no he perdido, creo, mi extraño buen gusto. Me gusta más apreciar lo bello en otros que lanzarme a vestirlo. En fín, tu relato es tan realista que cuesta creer que semejantes episodios no ocurran lejos de uno. Ese Genaro el insufrible quedaría mejor si tal vez supiéramos algo más de él y fuésemos nosotros quienes determinaramos que tan insufrible puede ser el tipo. Como sea, Emi tuvo sus motivos y lo que importa es lo que tu dijiste: sólo el final.
Un abrazo Guillermic y siga aflojando la pluma para mantener la mano caliente, como decía El Gabo.
