Sure, fashion's huge in America. But between their fanatical street style, high-fashion designs, and iconic looks (Harajuku Girls, anyone?), it's safe to say that the Japanese are in a stylish league of their own.
And now it's possible to see these elaborate outfits up close, minus the expensive plane ticket.
The new "Japan Fashion Now" exhibit in NYC is the first of its kind to showcase contemporary Japanese fashion, from the streets to the runway.
An added bonus? It's totally free!
And with 100 outfits from designers like Yohji Yamamoto, Number (N)ine, Commes de Garçons and Junya Watanabe, it's the easiest way to get foreign inspiration close to home.
