An Interview with H.NAOTO at Anime Expo 2015 [VKH-Press]
|h.NAOTO @ Anime Expo 2015|
During Anime Expo 2015, my second job as a reporter for VKH-Press was to interview a famous Japanese punk & gothic lolita designer, Hirooka Naoto!
When I interviewed him, he was very descriptive in his answers. I thought someone this big in the Harajuku fashion scene wouldn't be that easy to crack open for such wonderful answers really and it made me relax a bit. Anyways, for more about this fabulous designer, here's his description from the AX site:
Resonating to the ideas of extreme “punk,” he expanded his unique fashion views while incorporating Japanese subcultures such as gothic-lolita and visual-kei. The collections, filled with originality, gained much positive critiques and praises from Japan and overseas artists and musicians.Without limiting to a single category, the brand h.NAOTO endlessly seeks for a new world, and will continue to multiply diversely, and deepen.h.NAOTO has produced many categories such as NAOTO SEVEN, h.NAOTO FRILL, h.NAOTO Blood, Anarchy and DARK RED RUM after his debut.
