Tokyo Party Report by Samantha Mariko – November 2019

It’s been a while since I did a full-on party report, detailing the events I went to during the month. Since the holidays are just around the corner, so many brands were throwing holiday parties, which in my opinion is always fun. I also had the opportunity to DJ for several reception parties including CHARLES … Continue Reading

La Fondue Tokyo presents CHARRIOL “L’art de Vivre la Différence”

In my last post about Vivaci Tokyo, I mentioned I helped produce two big events during Rakuten Fashion Week TOKYO. I know I’m posting about said second event like, a month later, but there is no way I’m not going to dedicate a post about this one. The second event my La Fondue Tokyo team … Continue Reading

Vivaci Tokyo Vol. 1 – “Empowerment”

Last week was one of the busiest weeks of my life! But I am incredibly grateful for some fantastic opportunities that my La Fondue Tokyo Productions team was blessed with. During Rakuten Fashion Week TOKYO last week, my team and I produced two big events. In this post, I’ll be talking about our newest project, … Continue Reading

Flutter Experience LA

Last month, I took a much-needed two-week vacation to LA/OC. While there, I revisited some places I frequented in my younger days to write a piece for Cosmopolitan Japan titled, “Top 5 Date Spots in Southern California.” But there was one location I was dying to visit ever since I saw it featured on Rumi … Continue Reading

Tokyo Party Report for August 2019 – La Fondue Tokyo “Summer Oasis”

It’s been a while since we held a La Fondue Tokyo party! The last time we had one of our regular events was back in January (!).

Tokyo Party Report by Samantha Mariko – July 2018

July is my favorite month of the year – if you haven’t already noticed from my previous post, my birthday was in July. And because of that, summer is probably my favorite season and there is always so much going on during vacation season. In July, I had the pleasure of working for several events … Continue Reading

Tokyo Party Report by Samantha Mariko – June 2019

Isn’t it crazy that we’re already in the second half of 2019 as of today?? The first six months flew by so quickly that before you know it, it’ll already be winter (but wait, summer has barely even started!). June was a very eventful month, which lots of product launches, exhibitions and anniversary celebrations. I … Continue Reading

Tokyo Party Report for May 2019 – A Dip in Switzerland

This Tokyo Party Report will be slightly different as I will only be reporting on one party this time. Of course, I attended some parties and worked at others during the month of May, but this particular one was special in that I produced with my LA FONDUE TOKYO team. 今回の東京パーティーレポートは、いつもと違ってひとつのイベントについて書かせていただきます。もちろん、5月は様々なパーティーに出席しPRとしても参加したものも多かったですが、LA FONDUE TOKYOチームとプロデュースした「A Dip in … Continue Reading

Tokyo Party Report by Samantha Mariko – April 2019 pt. 2

In Japan, today marks the last day of Golden Week, an extended spring holiday of sorts. With the imperial transition taking place this year, Golden Week was 10 days long instead of the usual one week period. Which also gave me some extra time to write up part 2 of my April Tokyo Party Report. … Continue Reading

Tokyo Party Report by Samantha Mariko – April 2019 pt. 1

In Japan, April 30th marked the end of the Heisei Era. Today, on May 1st, the country welcomed the new Reiwa Era along with the new Emperor and Empress of Japan. Looking back on the previous month, it was jam-packed with different kinds of events, which in my opinion was a great way to end … Continue Reading
