- Choosing an existing or historic
subculture and create a piece of graphic
design about that subculture.
- The format is up to you, but the end
product must have a strong conceptual
connection in format, design, and content
to your chosen subculture.
Gyaru fashion is a type of Japanese street
fashion that originated in the 1970s. It is
typically characterized by having heavily
bleached or dyed hair (mostly shades from
dark brown to blonde), highly decorated
nails, and dramatic makeup. The makeup
typically consists of dark eyeliner and fake
eyelashes used in ways intended to make the
eyes appear larger, as well as contouring of
the face for a slimming effect.
Gyaryu is sometimes seen in a negative light
by some people so I would like to hold ‘Gyaru
Fashion Show’ to promulgate positively and
friendly to people.
I put makeup on famous women who are
already familiar faces from masterpieces such
as Mona Lisa and Girl with a Pearl Earring.
