The World Of Japan Fashion
In Japan, fashion is very important to young people. Aside from dressing well just to look good or cool, fashion defines for them what subculture they belong to, and they attach lots of importance to it.
One style you’ll see all over Japan is the “gkogal” look. You could say that kogals are the valley girls of Japan. They dress expensively and even have their own unique slang which is incomprehensible to some, especially older, adults. Kogal style is lavish, usually including mini-skirts and platform shoes. You can usually spot kogals right off by their bleached hair and deep suntans. You can see kogals all over Japan in any urban area, but their favorite spot is Tokyo’s Shibuya district, where all the expensive shops are.
