Japan Fashion Now

The title of this book, Japan Fashion Now, had grabbed me as I was browsing at the new arrivals section of the library a while back.

According to the blurb:

Japan Fashion Now will be the first book to explore how Japanese fashion has evolved in recent years. During this time, Japanese pop culture has swept the world, as young people everywhere read manga, watch anime, and play video games. Japan has had a profound impact on global culture, often via new media.

And I don't really think Japan Fashion Now is the first book to look into Japanese fashion sensibilities! But it was an interesting read nevertheless and had a section on gothic lolita fashion, of course.

I had scanned the  relevant pages on lolita fashion from the book and posted on egl before but never got around to posting on Tea-Tray, so here they be now! Click on the scans for the full-sized images to read =)


  1. Oh gosh! Thank you for posting these! I saved all of them and can't wait to get the chance to read through it!

    However, some of your photos don't link to anything :<

    1. Hmm, that's strange, all the scans do pop up for me when I click on one. Let me know which of the scans doesn't show for you?

    2. Oh, unless you mean a link to a larger scan! The scans here are already hosted by blogger so they're not linked.

      If you want larger scans, go to the original egl post I made before:

      The scans there are linked to larger scans =)
