17th Harajuku Fashion Walk

130526-2161

With temperatures slowly rising in Tokyo, the 17th Harajuku Fashion Walk took place yesterday

Bookmark and Share

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.

Noel shot at the park looks cool. Horie is so cute, and even cuter when she’s with kids! <3

@Maria: Yes, I felt that I got to see the real Horie yesterday. She spent a lot of time with those kids, she clearly enjoyed being with them. The shot of Noel in the park is probably the best shot of Noel I have taken so far.

Hi! こんにちは Kjeld(<なんて発音するんでしょう、ケルド?)さん。
はじめてこのJapaneseStreetサイトを拝見しました。
楽しかったHFWの写真がたくさん詰まっていて幸せな気分になりました。
写真の中のモデルたちのリラックスした表情はKjeldさんが築いてきた信頼関係があるからでしょう。
今まで良いお仕事をされてきたのだろうと拝察いたします。
私はシンガポールを拠点にしているので一年に一度くらいしか日本に帰りませんが、次回はまたこのHFWに合わせて行きたいと思います。
そのときはピクニックまで参加しようかな。。。

また会えるのを楽しみにしております。

Everything is soooooooooooooo awesome!!! O

There are so many incredible styles and so many familiar faces it would take me a lifetime to comment everything, so I’ll just say the first things that come to my mind in no particular order:

-Risa looks amaaaazing in bright pink :D

-Peke’s alien bag <33

-Kumamiki is back, and she’s wearing THAT yellow kimono OOO

-Horie! I didn’t know her before, but she’s soooo cute! I have a new Harajuku idol :D

-Japanese kids are too cute for this world :333

Oh, and I saw Ducky (http://wonderful-wonder-ducky.blogspot.com.es) on the second group picture! :P

Just like I said before: A-W-E-S-O-M-E :DDD
