Japan Fashion Week

Japan will start a Fashion Week to better compete with well-established fashion cities like New York, Paris and Milan.

Kjeld Duits: @Wolldecke: In Japan the Fashion Week is still growing in popularity. But in 2005 it started from quite a low level of awareness.
Wolldecke: I am a designer from Germany. We have been at the Berlin Fashion Week. It was nice but there were not a lot of visitors this year. How were the shows in Japan this year?
Luben Romanov: Hello, My business partner is Deborah Lindquist, pioneer in Eco fashion in the US. Deborah is well known for her high end cashmere apparel and her clothing lines are worn by variaty of A list celebrities. We are very interested in working with Japanese distributors. Any good ideas? Thank you, Luben Romanov

Shaved Eyebrows Banned

School bans four students with shaved eyebrows from opening day ceremony

Talia: Is it like…a status thing? I thought it was just fashionable. Some schools are just too strict…I like the subtle differences in people
Allie: I used to shave my eyebrows, but its only because I couldn’t afford to get them done properly. If the girls were smart they would just cut themselves a fringe to cover where you shaved your eyebrows. It worked for me. Except I looked retarted.
mmilk: stupid. crazy.

Cool Japan - クールジャパン

Graveyard Chic

Asahi Shimbun published an article about gothic fashion. I feel that the article does not give a fully accurate view, but that makes the article all the more interesting…

Necro Dolly: Oh dear, the media again. Pathetic, i dress Lolita goth alot and i don’t want to kill my parents… I wear it because i like it and i love Japan and the Victorian era and it appeals to me. That’s it. People are so scared of anything different these days. Let people dress how they like and stop trying to find a reason why and make them out to be bad people because of it. Everyones reason is different! We get enough crap off people in the streets for our clothing of choice, the meida just help fire up the abuse.
Porcelain Princess: I’m a lifestyle lolita who wears loli clothing every day at school and I don’t agree with this post. I think lolita is a reaction to the hypersexualisation of our society. Tired of all these boobs exhibed, these asses shaked, that horrid hormone smell and all that violence era encouraged with the mainstream (video games, TV shows, G-Unit and all that crap), I wanted to reach an ideal of respect, beauty and culture, like a Quest of Perfection or at least decency in my point of view. Lolita is the opposite of drugs (eventhough the link with Alice in Wonderland), violence (it depends), hypersexualisation, alcohol (we want to be proper, not to be drunk and show ourselves in a vulgar way), well, mediocrity. Yes, lolita are afraid of mediocrity. But again, it’s my opinion.
Andie: i am a lolita and it is really more of a way of life and looking at things. fashion and style are a big part of it, but it, in it’s essence represents a bold statement of freedom. a statement of denial of traditional ways of being, taking the best essence of the past and combining to make new ground. a new way of being.
