    How much I'd love to attend such a college! I would be so much fun! And so good and funny that they also have to work on those miniature dress forms.
    As a kid I so badly wanted to be a fashion designer.
    Great photos!

    Damn nice pictures.

    The choice of Black & White is excellent here because of the subjects in the pictures.

    Isn't Bunka wonderful? I had the great luck to visit during their Summer open house last year. Not to minimize the skill of the western couture houses, but I truly believe that some of the work that comes out of Bunka Fukusou Gakuin is better-designed and more VISIONARY than what we see on the runways. Did you visit their 3D body scan facility? Fascinating stuff.

    I love these pictures. The b/w enhances the 'work in process' atmosphere. I wonder why the girl is wearing a facemask.

    A long time ago I had the fortune to visit Japan, Kyoto to be exact, and the fashion is so wonderful there. Although I am a regular size 6 in North America, I had trouble finding fashion to fit though. They are tiny.

    I am amazed that this is your first trip to Japan, esp. for a fashion blog. Your photos from this trip are fantastic.

    Apologies to Milan, Paris and New York–Japan is just several steps ahead of you.

    Wow cool Scott! Thanks for posting images from this school, isn't this the school that Yohji Yamamoto went to?

    Beautiful shots! And, the girl in glasses look super cool. Isn't it amazing how the right pair of glasses can add so much character and attitude to ones look? Loving it!

    I love this post! Bunka is upposed to have the best textbooks for sewing, (they do them in English too)-and are understandable for home sewers. I wish I had some… soon soon I will get to Japan I promise!

    One thing that makes fashion so special and unique is the individual, hands-on creativity. The cutting and sewing and handling of fabric. It's great to see some of this aspect of it here (and from Japan!).

    Sabine: It's because she probably has a cold or something. In lots of areas in Japan (but especially Tokyo, where it's very crowded), if you are sick you wear a face mask so you don't spread your germs to others.

    They range anywhere from the plain one featured on this girl to pretty elaborate affairs. Considering all the times I've experienced colds and flu spread like wildfire in the workplace, it's a trend that I really wish would catch on over here in the States.

    Preservation and promotion of health is achieved through a combination of physical, mental and social well-being, sometimes called “the triangle of health.” Health is a positive concept focuses on the social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.
