    2. Being a fan of Japanese fashion I decided to borrow this book because the blurb said there would be harajuku fashion subcultures included But to my disappointment there were only a few pictures and 3 pages of information about Kogal and 3 pages of Harajuku fashion This information I found a little boring and out dated, as it focused on somewhat non relevant history rather than on what the subculture is currently like in modern day I had a brief read of the remainder of the book, but the other fa [...]

    3. I loved this book I am not that into fashion but the stories behind the fashion totally gripped me It was just amazing and I feel really excited to learn about how fashion influenced society and vice versa This is definitely worth a read My friends all now want to read it enjoy xxx

    4. Admittedly, one of my main motivations for buying this was because it would look great in an Instagram picture While it s beautiful imagery undoubtedly makes it a great coffee table book, the text included is also a fascinating look at modern history and society There are 30 sub cultures featured in this book, the oldest dating back back to the 1920s With a date range of almost 100 years, there were several subcultures featured that were not on my radar zoot suit and mod and other modern incarna [...]
