As a response to the requests and questions from all over the world, here is the first “Kawaii Summit”!! Popular “DOKUMO (local models)” of Japanese fashion magazines gather in the studio and discuss about fashion, lifestyle, makeup, etc. The summit is open to the Kawaii fans in some other countries through the internet to ask whatever questions they have for the guests. “DOKUMO” are not really a professional model, actually students or shop girls, and originally the readers of the magazines. As semi-professional fashion leaders, they introduce their own fashion, makeup technique, and even private lives in magazines. The readers can relate to themselves more easily to the “DOKUMOs” rather than to the professional models. DOKUMO, which is unique in Japan, have been asked lots of questions like their “private side of life?” or “how can I be like them?” etc.…In this episode, the secret of DOKUMO will be revealed!! Six popular DOKUMOs ranging from Gyaru, Fairy, Hime “princess,” to punk fashion will answer to the questions that Kawaii fans posted to our website and talk about their lifestyles & fashion techniques, etc… [UTC]
