MINT returns to ACen, this time representing MINT NeKO!

MINT NeKO, was an umbrella designed by h.NAOTO, a brand known for their one of a kind uniqueness and originality.

The designer MINT entered the fashion industry in the brand S-INC in 2006. He then collaborated with another designer to create the brand "Sixh."

MINT NeKO's style incorporates oriental silhouettes inspired by cat-like graphics.

There are more than 200 cat-like characters used in his fashion, which were originated as graffiti drawn in his design books.

He has given the cats life and tells vivid stories of them through his fashion. The characters have been included in other fashion brands such as SIXH and have music videos inspired by them.

Mint has been able to incorporate cats in the world of fashion, and has collaborated with many Japanese musicians to become one of the bright, up and coming young designers in Japan.

Thanks ACen for bringing fashion icons to our convention. Some may have varying opinions about its inclusion, but as a person with many different interests outside of anime, coming to this convention and being able to attend a fashion show is like killing two birds with one stone for me. I appreciate the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of interests in one place. That's pretty awesome for the money spent. c:

Sixh. will not be attending Anime Central this year. MINT has spun off his own line of fashion known as MINT NeKO.

Gotcha :3 Glad I caught them last year then. And not like we don't already have two international musical guests, haha.

Yay! Very excited to see MINT again!

I hope this doesn't seem like a stupid question; I wasn't sure if it was a given as a guest, but I was wondering if he'll be holding a panel or if there will be a fashion show. Maybe in conjunction with Gashicon?
