Since the late 1990’s there has been growth in desire for Japanese popular culture and fashion. With the development of technology and expansion of our communicative reach, many people across the world were able to discover the unique styles of Lolita, Decora, and other styles that wander the streets of Harajuku. This project discusses the history of Japanese fashion styles by comparing it to Western styles and consider the effects that this adoption of culture has had on Japan and the rest of the world.
