Japan is home to a variety of styles influence by the styles present from all over the world. You may think that most of these styles are silly or outlandish, but there is method to their madness. And in the end, designers, fashion enthusiasts, shoppers, from all over the world visit Japan to catch a hint of inspiration, to get their hands on these unique and interesting designs .
In japan, the shop staff workers wear the clothing found in the stores they work at usually. They work hard to perfect their makeup, coordinates, hairstyle, and skin, so that people will be more willing to shop there, since they get a glimpse of how good the style may look on them. The workers become very close with each other and are very helpful to shoppers, teaching them what would look good together, what would suit them the best, and other reccomendations.
