Thinking about studying fashion? Ever consider Japan? Bunka Fashion College is Japan’s first vocational school for fashion and over the past 50 years has churned out graduates that have entered the Paris Collections (Yohji Yamamoto with Y-3 and Kenzo Takada with Kenzo as examples). The coolest thing about Bunka? The students! The school is within walking distance of the famous Harajuku district and the influences couldn’t be more apparent. There is such a tremendous diversity amongst the students, ranging from vintage to gothic to anime to just over the top. I have so much respect for this particular type of Japanese fashion because it speaks of a generation and you really have to be fearless to go out dressed like they do. All I have to say is I thought figuring out what to wear everyday was hard enough, I’m glad I don’t have to keep up with these guys.

Here is a video of one of their fashion shows. Enjoy!
