Japanese clothes but few Japanese models at Tokyo Fashion WeekTokyo Fashion Week has long been a platform for edgy Japanese designers -- but perhaps more remarkable is just how few Japanese models grace its catwalks. "It’s kind of odd," said 24-year-old Rika Tatsuno, one of the few Japanese models appearing on the Tokyo catwalks, where she reckons she is in an Asian minority of about 10 to 15 percent. "Definitely we would like to see more Japanese models." A lack of racially diverse catwalks is by no means unique to Tokyo, which is vying to compete on the global fashion stage. In Japan, fashion is divided into "wafuku", or traditional Japanese clothing, and "yofuku", which literally means "Western-style clothing" and is now everyday wear.
