About Denver, Japan

Gimme Gimme Pillow Toast has sought out Asian !Pop! goods for several years and helped to expand an already increasing interest of Asian culture in Denver. In January 2010, we held a fashion show of enthusiasts of Japanese street fashion called, Tokyo Extreme Fashion Show. This photo book showcases the models and some of the attendees of the event. These are not costumes. Extreme street fashion in Japan shows individualism and creativity, with many western influences rooted in punk, gothic, colonial and Victorian styles, as well as literary and pop culture references. Musicians and young designers in Japan are often responsible for propagating and sometimes coining names of the varying styles. With young people in places like Denver, Colorado, opposite the globe from Japan, taking influence with elaborating on these styles, it has come full circle... and beyond.
