From my honorable mentions, I choose to recommend Culumi Nakada, model and DJ who are mostly appear in the “aomoji-kei (blue letter type)” magazines like Zipper, Vogue Girl, and NYLON. Culumi Nakada is a model who wears both Mode-style and Street-style very well, and also a successful buyer at a vintage clothing store in Shimokitazawa. Her Instagram posts include fashion coordinate of the day, but also balances out with her posts of daily food, shopping goods, and just ordinary scenes with friends. She is not like the other popular models who are to be the unattainable existence, but rather, down-to-earth kind of girl who likes second-hand street clothes and culture.
