What’s Fancy-kei ?

Harajuku fashion regroups lot of different types of  fashion. One of them is called Fancy-kei.

It’s deeply inspired by the pastel side of American 80s kids fashion.

This style was born in Harajuku but has been exported to Koenji because of some fancy vintage secondhand shops like Spank!(now in Nakano), HappyBirthdayToYou, Kiki2, and more  situated there.

It can include a lot of pastel styles you may know such as Fairy-kei, Yume Kawaii, Mori-kei, Cult-Party-Kei and more.

The party was thrown by Spank!’s famous owner : Tavuchi, to welcome some friends with the same interests coming from America !

This shows again that no matter where you are from you are welcome into the community ! Harajuku Fashion has no boundary !!

More than fashion : a lifestyle !

Harajuku fashion often doesn’t stop at clothes ! In fact it often goes with a whole life change, where everything is carefully selected to make you feel a little happier ~

For example fancy kids always bring some vintage stuffed animals at parties !

The place itself was extremely cute as you can see on pictures. It reminded me of a treehouse full of souvenirs painted by some children ~
