Laurel pointed me to this site that posts pictures of Trendy Japanese Youth. It’s not the adult-baby crap that most people think of when they here “Japanese Fashion,” it’s more of the everyday trendy stuff.
This is what I told Laurel:
when I was in Japan, Tokyo especially, you would see photographers set
up on a side street photographing anyone who they thought was trendy.
There were tv shows that would go through and find the latest fashions.
Most of them are of course not as wacky as people are aware of here
(“omg skirts with prints of panties on them! lol!”). When I was there,
they did a segment on, like, sweater tanktops with turtlenecks. And
they would have little interviews with like 6 women in a row with the
exact same look.
I guess what’s weird is they have a lot of styles you only see in Japan,
but in Japan a ton of people have that same style.
