STREET FASHION: HARAJUKU
HARAJUKU is well-known as fashion Street of Tokyo. A shopping and entertainment district for the young and trendy. HARAJUKU first burst onto the scene in 1964 - the Olympic year. HARAJUKU's fashion is an extraordinary blend of goods reflecting the Japanese notions of "cute", "cool and American" and "rebellious and British". In other words a strange mixture of Hello Kitty, Disney, hip-hop and the infamous British punk and fancy dresses.
