Interview with Tokyo model MORINO RINGO

             Tokyo Fashion is a website I check daily for a bunch of reasons, I love finding out about new models and fashion trends from Japan. Recently, they’ve been posting a lot about a certain young woman that goes by the name Morino Ringo (Ringo for short).

Lately, she’s been in some of Tokyo’s biggest fashion magazines, like KERA and Fruits. Her style is best described as Gothic Lolita with a dash of cuteness. Visual Kei is one of her inspirations and she loves grotesque fashion (like me).

Hyde: I adore your outfits. I see it combines the gothic Lolita style with cuteness. What inspires your style?
Ringo: “I’ve always loved the Harajuku fashions and Visual Kei.”

Hyde: Why did you start modeling?
Ringo: “I really wanted to help lead my style.”

Hyde: What’re your favorite brands in Tokyo?
Ringo: “hNAOTO, PUTUMAYO, peacenow, SEX POT revenge, algonquins, & vivienne Westwood have always been some of my favorites!”

Hyde: What fashion trend would you like to see make a comeback?
Ringo: “I want to bring back the Gothic Lolita fashion that was popular several years ago!”

Hyde: What’s the strangest piece of clothing/accessory you own?
Ringo: “My pierced earrings!.” (She has plenty of them)

Hyde: What’s your advice for people that want to be models like you?
“I want to say if it’s good then by all means continue by dressing in your favorite fashion. ☆彡”
