TOKYO -- Fashion models wearing outdoor clothes were hit by an artificial storm as they came onstage during the "Harsh Fashion Show" in the capital on Sept. 5.

During the show, major work clothing chain Workman Co., based in the Gunma Prefecture city of Isesaki, presented its autumn and winter outdoor collection for the general public.

The stormy weather was reproduced with a water spray and four large fans. Eight male and female models each wearing combinations of colorful new clothing priced within 10,000 yen -- including a windbreaker outfit for cycling and waterproof clothing for fishing -- smiled as they were exposed to the "storm."
