Marxy at J-Wave USA

The University of California at Los Angeles (“UCLA”) will be hosting a conference on exporting Japanese pop culture called J-Wave USA this upcoming weekend (March 13-15). Full schedule available here.

I will be presenting at 11:10 on Saturday morning at the sesssion “Japanese Street Fashion in Japan and the US” with Prof. Yuniya Kawamura, moderated by Patrick Macias. My presentation will look at whether Japanese fashion styles are “bottom-up” or “top-down” and how fashion magazines play a part in setting trends.

Admission is free, but registration is required for researchers hoping to attend. I will be at the other events that are open to the public, so say hello if you see someone very tall.

    I didn’t realize you were interested in Japanese fashion. Are you familiar with a magazine called “CanCam”?

    Do you mind if I ask how tall is very tall and will you be posting your conference paper online?

    Tall enough to say, that’s tall, but under two meters.
