Fashion At Fickle Wish

The majority of the store is littered with pastel accessories and outfit perfect for any “kawaii ” lover. Fickle Wish calls itself a ‘ Kawaii Shop’ and caters to the demographic that loves Japanese culture, anime and bright pastels and prints. It’s a subculture that developed in the past couple of years influenced partly by Tumblr and Harajuku fashion. Pastel pink, yellow, green, purple shirts and skirts litter the store, matched by vibrant prints on sailor outfits and sweaters.

Japanese inspired clothing is more trendy than ever. Japanese- American fushion fashion shops already exist in Little Tokyo, ( such as Popkiller, Asahi-ya) but Fickle Wish is the newest Little Tokyo shop  catering specifically to the anime/kawaii/lolita category.

In fact, it seems that these days, Japanese-inspired/ related apparel is super hip. I’ve even seen shirts and sweaters in Forever 21 and H&M sporting phrases like “大人になりたくない”  ( I don’t want to become an adult)

Overall, the night was filled with fun, fashion and lots of colors. Fickle Wish made it clear that this event will definitely not be the last of it’s kind. It seems like it’s only the beginning of an emerging “kawaii -la ” culture group.
