Designers, kawaii, cosplay . . . everything to know about the history of postwar Japanese fashion.

Since the 1970s Japanese fashion has continued to surprise with its unique trajectory. From the emergence of internationally active designers in that decade to kawaii youth culture, Gothic Lolita and other street fashions, and more, here's a full guide to Japanese fashion postwar to present, starting with a look further back at the social contexts and trends from the late nineteenth century that prepared the way for today's vibrant proliferation. Garments, photographs, periodicals, video images, and other sources richly explicate the fashions of each era from the perspectives of the creators and consumers of clothing trends as well as of the media serving as their go-between.
