Japanese girls can get away with the baby girl look because they are mostly small framed.

I always watch this video when fashion school stresses the hell out of me and makes me genuinely unhappy. My college focuses on functional but fashionable design, it's kinda hard for me since they don't really appreciate Tokyo fashion. I probably won't amount to anything in my home country. But is it even possible to get anywhere in Japan fashion-wise? I feel easily discouraged, because they have their Bunka fashion school, and every Designer who's acknowledged by streetstyle icons seems to have graduated from Bunka. Do I even have a chance? :(

Do you guys have any idea about what happened to her brand Party Baby? It seems like her online shop is down and I've seen Kumamiki talk about something called Pachi Pachi Factory on her youtube. I hope Party Baby isn't shut down forever :( Honestly, I like the image of Party Baby more than Pachi Pachi Factory.

What happened to Party Baby? Did she drop her fashion label or something? Or did she change the name to Pachi Pachi Factory? Party Baby's Japanese site is down as well as their Facebook.

I think Party Baby became Pachi Factory... Kumamiki stated Pachi Factory in her twitter bio

To grow up it's not an easy thing.. people never understand that being mature doesn't mean that you can't listen some kinds of music, that you can't watch cartoons or play videogames or maybe dress in ways they couldn't ever do..  Yeah, sometimes it becomes harder to swim against the current, it's sad that even close people can't understand and accept it.. in those moments we need something like this <3 wise words from a cute cute girl, so we can stand up again and smile..  She must reach all her dreams, for all the persons loving her work and for herself :3 She inspired me, let's move forward <3

I love how fashion isn't as restrictive for youths as it is in the West. I don't mean by being provocative, but it seems that being an individual and embracing new styles is concept more invited there than it is here. It's really refreshing.

justcomments (5 years ago)
Don't worry i'm not telling you to shut up, I just want a conversation :P Kumamiki san tells us the reason why she designs these clothes: they are a reaction to her journey through growing up, a far more meaningful reason to put on clothes than the vast majority of us who are happy to don whatever the magazines tell us to. What point in the interview did you think her work was soulless??
justcomments (5 years ago)
Wow. that was really touching ; ; and also hits home just how amazing Sebastian Masuda-san is... I remember several years ago he and his models came to represent 6% Doki Doki at a small cultural festival in London, and now Kawaii-Style is just so... big! Not only Kawaii-Style, but I feel like a lot more people are happily dressing the way that makes them more comfortable.
