Fashion Blogging-Style Post

(Kimoken Koenji Street Fashion Blog http://kimoken.exblog.jp/)
I had mentioned before in a post that I had considered fashion blogging. I think fashion blogging culture has been a strong force in the fashion field for the past several years. I have hesitated with the idea for awhile of personally having my own. I think it would be fun, but the idea of taking pictures of myself for the world to see could seem kind of pointless...

As an artist, I am constantly inspired by multiple things. Everything is online! It is ridiculous how much blog checking, tumblr reading, and street snap viewing I check when I actually have the time. Its kind of like when I'm having my personal life, I feel like I'm years behind on my "online life", even if I just missed a days worth of content. I think creative people of my generation can relate.

Something that keeps me fascinated is mixing fashion with art. I feel like as a fashion blogger, I have a bit of a different voice.  I think my personal style is a part of who I am, and for me it is not only a way to display current things that I am personally into at the time (refer to my interview by Yoona Ha HERE), but because it correlates with the design work I'm doing. The world is so incredibly "hyper-mixed" these days anyway, so why not incorporate it into fashion?

Does this mean that I actually look and dress like the illustrations I make? Maybe.

Tokyo Graffiti Magazine
So here is the first outfit post. I'm not sure how much I will do this, or if it will turn into more of a tumblr thing, but no matter what, staying creative and continuing to push my own boundaries as an artist and designer is key. Don't worry, this isn't going to become a blog full of posts like "Hey guys, check out these cool Japanese brands I'm wearing" everyday.

With that said...Here are my Tokyo Boppers and Christopher Nemeth socks.
