    Osaka Street Fashion


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     PaulHillier says that fashion is more than a statement in Japan, it is a conscious decision. 'In Japan everyone is very aware about fashion. It's a pretty central part of their lives. They know what it communicates to people around them.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Osaka Japan is known as the business city of Japan. It's a concrete jungle with loud lights and colorful people. Even though all eyes are on Tokyo's Harajuke, Kyoto or Kobe the small group of trend setters in Osaka still dress for the camera even if no one is watching.
