fashion world: TOKYO!!

dear bloggers,
Allow me to introduce a new subject FASHION WORLD, it about the different countries and their distinct way of dressing according to their culture. today I'm going to write about my personal favorite TOKYO,JAPAN!Lady Gaga's fashion choices are just like that of a typical girl walking down the street in shibuya or harajuku! Tokyo fashion(to most westerners) is odd or maybe even weird but that's the very reason i love it. My Trip to japan, when i was younger, was one of the many places that shaped my fashion palette now as a young adult.


ok so the city of tokyo is dividedin to fashion district each one with a unique street style.
AOYAMA
“select high-fashion district”. Aoyama visitors are the upscale trendy wealthy Japanese fashionistas, from 25 to 40 years old looking for trendy and unique fashionable brands, designers and concepts.


DAIKANYAMA
FOR THE MORE MAUTURE/CONSERVATIVE the backstreets of this “European fashion district”. Daikanyama visitors are the trendy casual Japanese fashionistas, from 25 to 35 years old looking for trendy fashionable designers and concepts

HARAJUKU
Harajuku (原宿) in Japan refers to an area around Harajuku train station. Harajuku style is a japanese fashion adopted by the teenagers and young adults in the area and its side streets which have many boutiques, trendy stores and used clothes shops.

Japanese Harajuku Girls and Harajuku Style has been used to describe teens dressed in many fashion styles ranging from Gothic Lolita (also gothic loli) Visual Kei, Ganguro, Gyaru, Kogal, to "cute" Kawaii style clothing.




SHIBUYA
one of the most well known and visited fashion district in all japan where you will get a distinct mix of all the above and then some!my personal favorite!It is the young hype fast-fashion area, for teens to early 20’s Japanese fashionistas. Trends are very fast, and tastes are diverse, but mainly focused on the “Gals” and university students. The Jinnan area is targeting the young casual market. Shibuya girls and guys styles are changing very fast. shibuya is also the birth place of The Ganguru trend.Ganguru which means "black face" in japanese is a controversial trend where woman tan there skin and get very dark dye their hair blonde, then wear white make up and lip stick










yes she's serious!

all together japanese fashion is very different from our own! there are many other fashion districts but these wher my main four. its diferent crazy out there and i love it!
smooches,
coco
