It might have been the anticipation of the higher temperatures, but there was a much larger group than usual. As has been the case the past few walks, lots of participants from abroad joined as all.
The looks were almost equally divided between Lolita and Decora, with a few Gothic looks thrown in for good measure.
Kumamiki has been extremely busy recently working on her brand, but she was able to join this walk about halfway through. Her cheerful voice and laughter was impossible to miss.
After the walk, some of us went to Yoyogi Park and had a nice colorful picnic. Horie noticed some kids from France and Belgium and instantly metamorphosed into the perfect entertainer. Her skills were not lost on the parents. “I want her to be our babysitter,” one of the mothers exclaimed.
See all the people we photographed at the 17th Harajuku Fashion Walk.

The walk seems to be fun for kids, too!
