From the streets of Harajuku: “Be true to yourself and have fun in so much color!!!”

I’ll never forget the day I found FRUITS, a monthly Japanese street fashion magazine founded in 1997 by photographer Shoichi Aoki. The colorful pages showed youth on the streets of Tokyos Harajuku district. The magazine primarily focused on individual styles found outside the fashion-industry mainstream, as well as subcultures such as lolita and ganguro, and local interpretations of larger subcultures like punk and goth.
Flipping through those pages made me realize that there was so much more to fashion than the styles I was familiar with, and it also made me absolutely certain that I needed to do something with fashion when I grew up.
I was so stoked when I got to talk to Candy Sakura, one of my favorite Harajuku girls who has such an offbeat, funky style of dressing up that is so colorful and fun.
She doesn’t care what people think about her wardrobe, or if people make fun of her style. She is true to herself and loves the colorful clothing and accessories that she styles in her own way.
In addition to being an extremely rad dresser, Candy is also a dancer and singer! She told us that she likes wearing tutus when she dances because they make her movements look bigger.
Love this girl! Such an inspiration to just have fun and be you.
