Japanese vs Romanian Fashion Culture
“Also, many fashion-conscious Japanese still tend to think in terms of logos,” Sugatsuke added. “They go for the huge, conspicuously recognizable, emblazoned icon because they don’t want to pay huge sums of money on things other people won’t recognize or understand.” reports Kaori Shoji in an article I’ve just read in the Herald Tribune … must read the rest … here…
The same issue seems to be the problem for Romanian people – THE LOGO. Why buy a designer piece that doesn’t scream Gucci? Purchasing a designer item becomes an action of showing the world that you have money and belong to a different social class.

The lack of Haute Couture in our country, seems to be another common point in comparison with Japan. We don’t understand fashion culture, Japanese people are new to it, as their haute couture is definitely – THE KIMONO
My question: Will Romanian people ever understand fashion, will we ever have haute couture?
