Up-to-the-Minute Japanese Fashion
Do you like this story?
If you've ever seen the magazine or books called Fruits, you're aware of the Japanese "Harajuku" fashion scene in Tokyo, Japan. (Gwen Stefani has paid tribute to "Harajuku Girls" in her performances and videos.) If you want instant, up-to-the-minute style scoops on what's being worn on the streets of Japan THIS VERY WEEK, check out Tokyo Street Style which covers Harajuku plus four other Tokyo districts. Unfortunately most of the text is in Japanese, but the pics are in the universal language!
Even more alternative and fascinating, though not as current (the photos are a few months old), is the site Japanese Streets, which copyrights all its fabulous photos so I can't post one here. This site captures the super-imaginative side of Tokyo fashion: wigs, fake fur, neon colors, wild makeup. (And bunny ears -- apparently bunny ears are quite a trend in Japan.) It's bound to give the creative dresser tons of ideas. The site also has photos of store displays and runway photos from Japan Fashion Week. Very inspirational! --Belissa
