My Thoughts, Tips, and Experiences in Fashion
In the last year, Korean Pop Music has definitely reached a wider audience (as evidenced by world tours that have come to the United States, and the recent KCon in LA). However, the mainstream buzz that Psy’s Gangnam Style created has died down and there hasn’t been another worldwide sensation that’s come out of Asia. But in terms of forward fashion, I believe Asian Pop Music is leading the way, and deserves to be paid attention to.
Some of you may remember Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Girls. And while, outside of Japan, we’re not hearing much about Harajuku, the district in Tokyo is still THE place to see/show off fashion styles.
Korean, Japanese, and Chinese Pop music share a lot of similarities, but I believe out of these three cultures that Korea is leading the way. A lot of Korean artists translate their music into Japanese and Chinese, and have quite the following in those two countries as well.
So, here’s why I believe you should be paying attention to KPop and the fashion that’s coming out of Asia in general.
Even if not everything you see a Pop Star wearing is to your tastes, there’s definitely something you can take away from by paying attention to their styles. Even if the lesson is, don’t be afraid to take chances.
Check out one of my outfits that had a little KPop inspiration.
Here’s some music videos of some of the Korean Pop Stars that I think are leading the way in terms of Korean Fashion:
