Miss SL ♛ Japan’s inspiration was a minimalism design by Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto’s Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection which featured a white tunic top and white long skirt.

Miss SL ♛ Japan incorporated the colors of her country’s flag to create her mix and match styling using items from David Heather, ISON, and Happy Undead, as well as accessories from ISON and MYNX.

She slipped a red tank top beneath a white draped cropped top for a chic look over her elegant white skirt. Her short hairstyle and white strapped sandals for a hint of edginess, and a simplistic yet bold silver and red ring. Subtle elements of; red lips, subtle eyeliners, and red nails finalized Miss SL ♛ Japan’s minimalist style.

Miss SL ♛ Japan – International Women’s Day Statement

Japanese culture is shaped by the balance of tradition and modern values. However, constant fundamental influences have changed for the younger population.

Traditionally in Japanese society, women were expected to marry and become homemakers. Their role was simple “A woman’s place was in the home.” Today, more and more working mothers are entering the workforce and becoming important role models as part of Japan’s economic growth strategic plan.

Notable achievements paved the way by opening doors to higher wages, obtaining executive positions, and breaking glass barriers while still ensuring their children were well-cared for. Multitasking has been a woman’s role for centuries but never more so than today for Japan’s working women. They have a greater advantage by being multinational if working for a foreign-based office where the first language may not necessarily be English. Ultimately, these women are an integral part of the success to any company.

Regardless of the countries we represent today, we must continue to support all women of the world and break down the stereotypical barriers of tomorrow. Let’s all continue to be bold for change.
