The 246st.MARKET, which WORLD started in 2019 and celebrates its 5th time, has focused on reuse and creativity from the concept of “GOOD FOR FUTURE” that has been held as a concept so far. This time, the theme will be “GARAGE FOR FUTURE” featuring the used select shop “RAGTAG” of the World Group. The creators will visit the product center where about 300,000 items of “RAGTAG” are always stored and select the products that they feel inspired by. “246st.MARKET” will curate the whole and sell it on the 1st floor of the World Kita Aoyama Building along with the creator’s products. Rather than being thrown away, precious clothes that have been handed over to people who love fashion have become a new initiative to bring to the world through the selection of creators.
World will continue to serve as a place to connect creators and start-up brands who will lead the next generation and consumers. We will evolve this initiative as a place to face themes that fit the times. Points of this release
