Ladies (and gents?), let's talk some Nodame fashion!^^
xXx "Senpai, it's your belt!!" xXx
While watching the drama, I often found myself wondering about the outfits that Ueno Juri wonderfully wore as Nodame, questioning whether they were custom-designed for the character( I mean, Nodame wears those one-pieces A LOT) or if they actually resulted from a great and careful job done by the production team's stylists in making the outfits selection. I thought they found the perfect look for Nodame in the drama as it matches with the image of Nodame in the original manga.
With some bouts of research that I did a while back(okay,so it was more "clicking" and "browsing" than an actual researching lol) I discovered the names of some of the labels used in the drama and I will feature them here in the blog from time to time. I'm sure some of us here already have the advantage of knowing some of these labels,but for those who don't ..there's nothing to lose if you check them out ne.Of course I am no fashion guru here,but just in case anybody feels like doing some online shopping to dress like Nodame...
was Tartan Shop York, and as the name suggested the label focuses on outfits from tartan fabrics, ranging from dresses,tops,coats,shirts,pants and even shoes and sandals. Also included as part of their collections are knitted wears, button-downs, cardigans and scarfs and even funky nails sets. And they have a range of lifestyle products in tartan as well.^^
For more information,visit the label's official site here.It's fully in Japanese though. Or maybe if you happened to be in Sendai,Japan sometime soon, why not take a look at the shop on the 1st Floor,Fashion Dome 141.^^
