Why are there so few Japanese fashion models? Tokyo Fashion Week's Runway

【3月19日 AFP】For a long time, Tokyo Fashion week has become a place for spirited designers to show off their creations. However, what might catch your eyes more than that is the lack of Japanese models walking the runway. Tall, white, and especially blonde young women are conquering the runway. Such foreigners can be seen everywhere including Japanese magazines, shows, advertisements and the like.

"I have a weird feeling," says Rika Tatsuno, 24, one of the few Japanese models to walk the Tokyo runway. According to her, Asian models make up 10-15% of the models walking the runway. "Of course, I want to see Japanese models," she says.

Runway models not being diverse is not limited to Tokyo. There is also the global competition. Nevertheless, the lack of Japanese models stands out. In the case of western clothing brands, chances for Japanese models to appear are limited. For example, for clothing that is designed by a Japanese designer, the consumers will mostly be Japanese.

"It's a natural thing. I have designed conventional Japanese clothing, I would use Japanese models," says Uemora Hiroki, designer of byU, which made it's debut on this fashion walkway. "I think I want to show the part that says 'Made in Japan.'" But, what Japanese people feel attraction to are Europeans and foreigners. So, to broaden the image of my brand, I appointed foreign models."

Even though it's clothing that Japanese people will wear can white models be used as a reference?

Me when I look at a fashion magazine "Uwaa these clothes are cool"
Me when I wear the clothes at a store "What is up with this sadly mistaken gross guy in glasses..."
Conclusion: Models are cool
