Japanese Streets Bunka Fashion College Bunkasai 2012 New Balance ACV Erostika 2

intro to techno snobbery

Welcome to my third attempt at blogging!  Obviously the first two went absolutely nowhere.  But really, i’m shocked and appalled I didn’t think of this concept earlier.  Those that have known me for a while, know that I fucking love raver clothes.  Let’s just say I was stylistically challenged before I was introduced to the joys of Geek Boutique and FDCO.  With the crash of the late 90s rave wave, most clothing companies producing garments […]
