Japanese fashion wouldn’t be as popular as it is now without the help of Japanese fashion models. Models can be seen on magazines, videos, print ads, and in some cases, they even venture into acting. Here are some of Japan’s favorite models that have contributed much to the popularity of Japanese fashion.
Namie Amuro is not only a model, but she is also a singer, dancer and an occasional actress. Born in Okinawa, she was scouted at a very young age. She started as a part of a singing group, and eventually she was able to establish her own name in the music industry. In terms of fashion, her unique fashion sense has started a new trend, known as Amuraa. Characterized by platform boots, miniskirts and tanned skin, as well as dyed hair and skin-baring clothes, it is believed that the Amuraa craze was the predecessor of the Ganguro trend.
