The biggest market for Japanese fashion today is on the World Wide Web. Online fashion shopping is becoming the norm for many styles. Conscious people around the globe and Japanese and Asian fashion have made a big splash over the past few years. Japanese trends in fashion are fast moving and unlike Europe where it can take a season or two before designer fashion filters down to the street, Japanese fashion styles, brands and designers are immediately snapped up by streetwise ‘fashionistas’ in Tokyo, Osaka and Aichi.
Online Fashion Shopping – Top Styles at Your Fingertips
Online stores and boutiques as well as big brands are very definitely big business in Japan and across Asia. Online fashion shopping outlets ensure that the latest designs are available immediately to the widest possible audience. Some online stores dedicated to Japanese styles and designs have hourly updates with photos of people on the street wearing the latest fashion trends and, more importantly, influencing Asian fashion simply by their choice of clothing for the day. Is it perhaps a case of the designers and buyers influencing or being influenced by the “man on the street” rather than the opposite?
