At the Formal Salon at Ginza Mitsukoshi 3rd Floor, you can find "black fashion attire for formal occasions" to wear for ceremonies, in addition to gorgeous dresses that will brighten up celebratory events.
Referred in Japanese as "black formal," these black dresses are worn as formal clothing for events such as funerals. While many items tend to reflect the official codes and mannerisms of formal attire, in recent years, new jackets and dresses have been released that can be worn for other occasions, depending on how you style it. There has been an increase in customers, popular especially among Chinese customers in their 30s-40s, who purchase these "black formal" items for work or parties.

Black dresses are a versatile piece of clothing that can be worn at work or for semi-formal occasions, such as dinners and ceremonies. Let's take a closer look at this convenient black dress that can be styled in multiple ways.
