J-fashion and all the weebs have increased over the years.
ect ect they all have emotional baggage or drama. So many other people to count in too.
expect for yknow
the people who want to take part in that fashion who are actually japanese.
I doubt it's dying, just changing. I remember hearing about how people freakee out cause they thought Lolita fashion was dying but it's still around. I don't care about fairy kei toning down at all cause I kinda hate it tbh. It night look a little better that way.>>102863
Watch people on tumblr get a hold of it and some prominent figure on there trash it. They'll find some reason to turn it all about some movement or act like an ass cause it makes them special.
I agree. I think it's just an adapting taste and the whole OTT fashion thing falling out of style. Globally that whole neutrals/street/edge wear is what is really big, so now high fashion is like.. Sneakers with a sweater, leggings and a baseball cap.
If you look at the states it's similar. While we didn't have as many sub fashions, in the 2000s emo and scene kids were around and they were pretty alternative while now edgy kids just kind of emulate 90s wear for the most part.
We just have to wait a few years for the next thing to come up (though by that point we'll probably be too old to wear it, lel)

I'm kind of worried that there won't be such a big scene for street fashion for a long time to come though. With internet shopping, irl pilgrimages don't need to happen, and social media allows people to move their experimentation online.
I guess music venues will always be a place for youth to hang out and be wacky in.
I'm just salty because I wanted to live the weaboo dream and move there for a bit and be an embarassing gaijin, but it's sort of too late to do that now.

This tho. Kfash is basically pale Asian girls' attempt at looking "gangsta" and ghetto. That's why gun motifs, baseball caps, clothes with random English/Latin letters, and bandannas are so popular in kfash. >>103047
I went to Harajuku recently and I've noticed that more shops are beginning to carry Taobao shit and less original designs. It's all emo Disney characters shit now like pic related.
Yes its 99% to do with rent rising in tokyo, because of tourism and multiculturism
so yes it is to do with foreigners, but not us. unless you are the kind of person who can afford to buy an apartment in tokyo for 2 million? lol
the same thing is happening here in toronto/NYC, i dont know about the west coast. but asian people - china, japan and korea - are coming over here in DROVES and driving the market prices up, making it impossible for ordinary people to live in city centers…

Mainstream Kfashion is not ghetto at all. It's generic cutesy clothes, normie shit you would find at forever 21. Lots of minimalistic looks with baggy t-shirts paired with jeans or shorts.
Most photos you see on aliexpress or ebay shops are stolen from Korean fashions stores.
what's the point of calling it kfash if it's just plain normie clothes? at least jfash has a distinct style.>>103400
imo it looks and feels like they cheaped out on construction costs. i get that deconstructed garments on a thing but deconstructed clothes look and feel like it's on purpose. h.naoto's "deconstructed" clothes just look like they didn't feel like paying 10 cents extra per piece to get them finished.

I think this article is relevant.https://medium.com/@TokyoFashion/japanese-street-fashion-10-things-you-need-to-know-in-2016-59221ab241ee#.lvrzpvy8v
Tumblr must be happy since one of the new styles is genderless and the other is described to have a "Tumblr bad-girl attitude".
Feel sorry for Tokyo Fashion as the my must feel slightly responsible with bring this much attention to jfashion. Glad to see them hating on the recent tourist boom with the "harajuku zoo".
In the recent Chelsea lately thing on harjuku(spot the tourist was fun to play), Elleanor came across so pissed off at the new direction it's taking and the spark disappearing.

This might surprise you anon, don't freak out, but there's been this top secret thing called androgyny for a while now.
It's really underground but there are even ancient legends of men that dress in a genderless way; prophecies foretell of a prince and some kind of mana from the heavens made from the dust of stars. It is said that when all three parts of the prophecy come to be true, men of the world will begin to moisturise, signifying the end of days.
(Yeah it's actually a thing)
The international popularity growth must have been good in some way, no? I think that once the general public gets used to crazier fashion styles (which they're already beginning to, see mobs of tumblr people with colored hair) we'll be able to have a place to hang out with other wackos without it turning into a zoo.
Maybe I'm too optimistic.
Either way, it's silly to "blame" this on any one person, every relevant avant-garde place eventually implodes, see Paris and New York.>>103509>ACTUAL ANDROGYNY is nothing like this!
