3 Tokyo Baddies Sound Off on Girl Power
Tokyo is a growing girl power capital of the world, so we headed over to ask three cool af Tokyo chicks what’s up. Here’s what they told us.
â€œUsually I enjoy wearing menâ€™s brand clothing in my own unique style rather than what typical Japanese models wear or what the current trend fashion is. Thatâ€™s because Iâ€™m inspired by old Japanese street culture. As a model, I get to wear various womenâ€™s clothing and I enjoy that aspect too. Even if I speak differently and dress in my own unique, free style, I believe that I can achieve anything I set my mind to.â€
Nina Utashiro, ID magazine editor
â€œYes, Japan is an extremely chauvinistic country. In other words, there is a clear gender distinction here. Whether you are a girl, boy, transgender, or whatever, you just gotta use what you’ve got and work the game. That being said, we can flawlessly strut in heels bigger than your dick so, you know, we win.â€
Thelma Aoyama,Â singer
â€œGirl power is not comparing yourself with anyone. Being ‘yourself’ is your ultimate power. Tokyo is the place that accepts any type of culture & fashion thats why it attracts people from all around the world.â€
