GETTING HYPER ABOUT JAPAN

People are flocking to London, and getting all Hyper about Japan.
Well that’s what it seamed like on Saturday 13th July at Kensington’s 
Olympia.
Crazy long queues were seen around the sides of the grand exhibition 
hall, but it was the fashion trends from, or inspired by Japan that 
interested us here at JSTREETSTYLE. More specifically the sense of 
individuality that we love so much here, and is in such short supply 
these days and intact, over the last few years.
We normally brig to you a frequent fix of Japanese Street Style, 
but its is so rare to see  these days within London. First of all, 
where are all the cool Japanese.
Lots of young Chinese wearing high end western fashion brands, 
specifically so much Gucci. But Japanese?
With we westerners, at an event like this, you’ll easily spot cosplay 
as supreme ruler in style, possibly followed by Gothic and Sweet Lolita, 
possibly some Fairy Kei, with a sprinkling or dusting of Decora,
but not much else in terms of the numerous style tribes Japan’s streets 
has to offer up to the world. So with that in mind, here is the offering of 
street style we were able to serve up for you, for this sunny summer 
weekend. Worth getting all hyper about? Well, you decide.
 This is the amazing make up artist and model Frankie Storm
wearing a cool punk goth fetish look, with Stack Soul Stomper 
platform boots by Demonia, and a corset from Sai Sai in Camden 
with shorts, a croptop from Bio Hazard, a cardigan and a choker.
We think Frankie looks awesome.
Kirsty from Sheffield. She wears a Sweet Lolita dress by Angelic Pretty 
with a print tattled Melty Guy, with tights also by Angelic Pretty, 
with shoes from Ali Express, and a bag by Loris.
 This is Serena from London. She wears a dress and bag both by 
Angelic Pretty, bear slipper shoes, and an amazing vintage 
Johnson’s Baby Powder sweater by Eagles Eye.
 This is Jessica Raffergy from Stoke On Trent. At only 15 years of age, 
what you see her wearing here, her bonnet and dress, has been designed 
and made by herself, and to a very high standard, with pre construction 
garment stitched and hemmed just like a Christian Dior Atelier garment.
 This is lovely redhead Laura Baldwin. She wears a dress with antique 
paper dolls OP by dolls party, a headbow by Surface Spell, boots by bodyline,
an Anglomania tote bag by Vivienne Westwood. Her Doll by Alice’s collections
 Japanese street style trend are truly global, as demonstrated by these four 
young French women about to get their fix of high street fashion from Japan,
but from within a London exhibition hall.

Then this is the place and the event for you.


The event now in its 6th year and organised by influential 
British Designer Wayne Hemingway OBE, took place in 
Granary Square and throughout its Peninsular, on a fresh windy 
spring day. Did that deter anyone?
Of course not. It didn’t deter me, and it shouldn’t you. 

Why not give it a try for yourself.
Here are a few images of some of the super stylish people, 
that attended the event, all dressed up in their vintage finest.

This is Fashion Styling student Alisa from Bangkok, Thailand, dressed 
in vintage style, but with accents of today with her Gucci ankle boots, 
and her padlock pendent necklace by Louis Vuitton.
 This is Luka from Japan. On an insanely windy day, just look at that 
impeccably styled hair of hers, with each and every curl tumbling 
to perfection. Luka is a Jazz Singer and a Make Up Artist.
Check out these two from the Meyer Go-Go dancers dressed in
1960s Vintage style.
