|Tokyo, Japan is internationally influential when it comes to trendsetting. With the emergence of native designers, akin to Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garcons) in the 1980s, its fashion prominence has grown considerably. Japanese street style is often broken up into subcultures among the large urban fashion districts, including: Harajuku, Ginza, Odaiba, Shinjuku, Shibuya. No other place, globally, is as influenced by youth fashion, and it is believed that this phenomenon is in direct conjunction to the overall "consumerist" Japanese culture that has become more pronounced over the last three decades. |
Have a great weekend everyone!
