Harajuku is a fashion phenomenon originating in Tokyo’s Harajuku Station that

has made Japan a global fashion leader.   It is the whimsical, fun-loving clashing of

East and West fashion by Japanese pop culture.  Styles are colorful  and avante-garde, creative, feminine, geisha-inspired, futuristic and fantasy- inspired.   The street is the catwalk.

New

“Gothic Lolita,  a sub-trend of Harajuku is an edgy re-interpretation of

Victorian style that imparts earthiness, and a perceived sense of danger to the fashion

of this pure and innocent era.   Colors are dark- blacks, dark blues, and  purples. Jewelry

and accessories include religious symbols, coffins, bats, rats, spikes, etc.   

Hoshi is an example of this style trend.
