PARK Harajuku


PARK isn’t your typical Harajuku boutique.

Operating under the theme fashion × otaku × creation, PARK uses various collaborations, promotions, and events to help anime fans find their style.

Through one such event, known as “VIRTUAL REALI-T,” PARK sought to connect fans directly with their idols through the medium of fashion.

We thought we’d chronicle this event for those who, like us, need a bit more Virtual in their Reality.
