Can you think of one place where you can go anytime to find fashion inspiration? Most people would think of the streets of Paris, the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, or Times Square in New York. Yet, I think of the shopping district Harajuku in Tokyo, Japan. Similar to the streets of LA or NYC, Harajuku draws in a lot of visitors in Japan due to their various foreign fashion vendors.The famous shopping complex and museum LaForet Harajuku ,located in the Harajuku district, has become a popular venue for citizens and tourists to shop. Modernly, the district is a reflection of the youth fashion and entertainment culture of Japan. The fashion you will usually view when you tour the district is audacious, anime cosplay. Although the style at the district can be very eccentric at times, their creativity and boldness is truly inspirational.

The gorgeous Taiwanese model, Pace Wu, is very well known for her immaculate gowns and cocktail dresses. At every event she attends, Wu always steals the spotlight from other guests due to her beautiful, detail oriented gowns and accessories. Her clothing always has a feminine silhouette and intricate patterns. She truly has inspired me to add more patterns to my wardrobe and, hopefully, she can inspire you too 🙂
