I Got A Japanese Lolita Fashion Makeover

  • Published: 21 July 2019
  • So we traveled to East Asia to film a six-part series about beauty, style, and shopping - and we’re coming in hot with episode 2 about Japanese Street Fashion Subcultures! Japan has some very iconic and unique Harajuku-centric fashion subcultures, and Lolita style has always fascinated me - so we decided to do a deep dive into the poofy, frilly, pastel style! What do you think of my final look?

          Hello peoples, I am looking at Safiya Nygaard and I know I can safely comment on here. I used to be pretty admiring of Japan's subcultures, especially Lolita, but recently I've had some problems with it. First I learned about "the book" made by that Russian author who made a book called Lolita in the 1960s, about this middle aged man sexually abusing a 12 year old child. I've researched much about what westerns think about Japanese culture, and to me it seems sort of pedophilic. For example there are "Moes" "Geishas" etc. Also "Anneko" tends to be associated with furies and "Yami Kawaii" (everyone knows what thats about)
          Can someone who knows about this subject, who is Japanese or who knows a lot about Harajuku culture please enlighten me? Is it really a gross spawn or is it perfectly innocent? Is there something going on with Japan paying these schoolgirls to pet their hair, or is it just western dirty minded people?" Please someone who is a professional HELP ME!

                                      It’s amazing how much research Saf does for her video and how much she puts away her ideas and the outside worlds ideas about Lolita culture. I also really appreciate that she pointed out dry early that the fashion has NOTHING to do with the book “Lolita,” which is a problem for the fashion

                                                                      youthfulness as "sexy" beauty is even more extremely idealized in east asia than in the west... as the sheer number of highschool uniforms as cosplays at any fandom event can probably attest. so that (and, obvs, the fun of swishing skirts & feeling like a princess) is why lolita became so huge.
