Athlete Safari: Athlete Dresser Awards 2018
(Report by Kai)
Where do I start....
Each year, "Safari", a Japanese Men's fashion magazine, presents an award to Japanese athletes who are excelling in t
heir field while maintaining a fashionable presence out of competition.
And I was nominated!
I have to say that I was shocked to say the least. I have always taken care to "be presentable" and to look professional, but to be recognised for fashion was something that I never expected.
The awards ceremony was held in Tokyo on December 8th.
I had a whirlwind trip to Japan - flying in on Friday morning, attending the Red Bull Crashed Ice event on Friday night, and then the Athlete Safari: Athlete Dresser Awards event on Saturday afternoon before flying home that night!
The event was an unreal experience, and I was lined up alongside some of Japan's highest profile athletes on stage at the Hankyu-Men's store in Tokyo!
A huge thank you to Safari for the opportunity, and to Berluti for the beautiful burgundy suit!
