T-ARTS Company, Ltd. (Japan) organized a fashion show with the most people modelling on a catwalk at Pacifico Yokohama, in Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan, on 30 March 2012.

With 1,274 participants, the T-ARTS fashion show broke the previous record of 1,243 people set in New York City, USA, last July.

Guinness World Records (TM) Adjudicators, Aya McMillan and Carlos Martinez, travelled to Yokohama to be present at the event, to make sure that the official guidelines were followed, and to verify the counting of all the participants.

The fashion show had a duration of 2 hours, with most of the participants being girls ranging from 6 to 12 years of age. Also parents, brothers and even a group of 3-year-old girls joined the party to add up to the effort to break the official world record. The participants came from all over Japan and over 200 of these girls were professional kid models.

Once the fashion show was completed, Guinness World Records presented the official certificate to the kid talent Tani Kanon, who received it on behalf of all the participants in the record breaking show.

The fashion brands that were present in the fashion show were RONI, EARTHMAGIC,CHUBBYGANG, and PrismStone.

Congratulations Japan for one more world record!
