HARUKA KUREBAYASHI Q&A


A little while ago we asked you to send in your questions to Haruka Kurebayashi! To help get you excited for next weekend's events, here are her answers below! (We'll also be posting these to our web site Q&A section shortly.)

Q: How did you become a KERA model?

KERAのモデルになったいきさつを教えて下さい。

A: 高校生の時に参加した地方のKERAスナップです。その1年後に上京して、全く同じ編集さんに原宿で声をかけられKERAのモデルをすることになりました。

I attended a KERA shoot in my local area while I was in high school.  Then, I moved to Tokyo and one day, the same KERA staff found me on the street in Harajuku.and asked me to be a model.


Q: What is your favorite brand?

好きなブランドを教えて下さい。


A: いっぱいあって答えきれません^^

強いて言えば、派手なファッションならLISTEN FLAVORや6%DOKIDOKI、ロリータならPUTUMAYOが好きです。

There are so many of them I cannot even answer^^

From flashy brands I would say LISTEN FLAVOR and 6% DOKIDOKI, and from Lolita brands I like PUTUMAYO.


Q: How old were you when you started using vivid colors in your fashion?

原色使いのファッションを始めたのはいくつの時ですか?

A: 中学生くらいから大好きでずっと着てます。

I have been wearing it since I was in junior high school.  I really love it.


Q: How do you think your style changes in the future?

将来はどんな風にあなたのスタイルは変わっていくと思いますか?

A: いつまでも原色!いつまでも柄×柄!

Vivid color forever! Designed pattern forever!


Q: Do you wear any Lolita style?

ロリータのお洋服も着ますか?


A: たまに着ます。ロリータの友達がいるので自分でも10着ほど持っていて、彼女と一緒にお出かけする時はロリータを着たりもします。

I wear Lolita dress sometimes.  I have about ten Lolita outfits and also I have a friend who likes Lolita fashion so I wear it when I go out with her.


Q: If you want to slowly migrate to an alternative fashion, how do you do it?

これから少しずつオルタネティブファッションを始めたい人はどうしたらいいと思いますか?

A: 好きな色や柄を少しづつ取り入れていくことをお勧めします。ワンポイントからでもスタートできますよ◎

I would suggest adding your favorite color and/or favorite pattern a little by little at first. You can even start from a small embroidered design in one spot.


Q: What do you think about when choosing an outfit?

服装を決める時に考えることは何ですか?

A: その日に自分が何を一番着たいかです。たとえば新しいスカート、お気に入りのブラウス、その日のとっておきを中心にコーディネートを組みます。

I think what I want to wear on that day.  I would make a coordinates based on something special, such as a brand new skirt or my favorite blouse, for example.


Q: What is your favorite Japanese fashion style other than the style you wear?

現在良く着られてる雰囲気のお洋服以外にも好きなスタイルはありますか?


A: パンクスタイルが大好きです。自分にはないセンスだから!

I love punk style! That sense is something I don’t have!


Q: How do you color your hair? What kind of treatment are you using for it?

髪はどうやって染めてますか? 使っているトリートメントも教えて下さい。

A: VIVA☆CUTE CANDYというサロンで染めてもらっています。使っているトリートメントはハピネスのアロマトリートメント。アリミノのスプレータイプのシリコンスプレーも使っています。

I color my hair at the salon named “VIVA☆CUTE CANDY”. I ‘ve been using aroma treatment of HAPPINESS and a silicon spray of ARIMINO.


Q: Who is your favorite model in KERA?

KERAで好きなモデルはいますか?


A: みんな素敵で尊敬しているモデルさんばかりですが個人的にはパンクスタイルが好きなのでKaoruちゃんが好きです。

Everyone is cool and I have great respect to all but since I love punk style I would say I like Kaoruchan.


Q: What is your dream in the future? What do you do for it?

将来の夢を教えて下さい。 そしてそれに向かって何をしてるかも教えて下さい。

A: 今とっても楽しいので、今の仕事が続けられれば 絶対にこれになりたい!というものはありません。。 ただ、昔から興味を持ったらすぐにやってみたい性格なので暇さえあれば資格を取っています。最近は秘書検定をとりました。派手な秘書が必要な方はいませんか?笑

Since I am enjoying current life so much, if I can continue my current work I cannot think of anything that makes me say “definitely I want to be this in the future!“

However, for a long time I have I always liked to get certificates if I get interested in something, so I will keep having more certificates whenever I have free time.  Recently I passed an exam to be a private secretary.  Is there someone who wants to hire a showily decorated private secretary?


Q: You speak English very well. How did you study it?

英語上手ですね。 どうやって勉強しましたか?

A: 小さい頃の夢がキャビンアテンダントだったので、中学生の時にオーストラリアへ短期留学、高校卒業後にはヨーロッパを旅しました。

結局その後ずっと日本にいるので話す機会もなくカタコトですが、これからたくさん海外へ行きたいと思っているのでまた勉強中です!みんなとお話ししたいのでがんばります^^

My dream when I was a child was becoming a flight attendant, so, I had a short study abroad in Australia when I was in junior high, and I also traveled in Europe after graduating from high school.   My English is still broken since I haven’t had any chance to speak English ever since. I want to study English more because I want to go foreign countries more!  I will work hard to talk more with many people overseas.


Q: Have you come to NYC? Is there anything you are looking forward to seeing here? What kind of American food do you want to eat?

ニューヨークには来たことありますか? ニューヨークで見てみたいものはありますか? どんなアメリカンフードが食べたいですか?

A: NYは行くのは初めてです!小さい頃大好きだった映画「セントラルパークの妖精」の舞台の街なので、ぜひセントラルパークに行ってみたいです。

そしてアメリカンフードといえば真っ先にカラフルなスイーツが思い浮かびました!なにか私へお勧めがあったら教えてください♡

This is my first time to come to New York City! I would love to visit Central Park since it was in the movie, “A Troll in Central Park”.

I am imagining very colorful sweets as American food!  If you have any recommendations, please let me know ♡


Q: Please give a message to for the customers of Tokyo Rebel and WAKUWAKU NYC.

(最後に東京レベルのお客様とワクワクニューヨーク・シティのイベントのお客様にメッセージを

お願いします。)

A: いつも応援してくれている皆さま、どうもありがとうございます!

今回初めてNYでファンミーティングすることができてとっても嬉しいです。

ぜひ当日は好きなお洋服にカワイイメイクでおしゃれして会いに来てください^^

みなさんに会えるのをとっても楽しみにしています!

Thank you very much for supporting me always!

I am so happy to meet Americans who like Harajuku Fashion for the first time.

Please wear your best favorite outfit and KAWAII make up on the day of the event^^

I am looking forward to seeing you everyone so much!

Weekly Coordinates!

Hey guys, Kitsy and Karen here! Welcome to this week's coordinates post! This week we picked coordinates from SEX POT ReVeNGe, PUTUMAYO, Listen Flavor and Yoh's Monochrome World! You can find all of these items both in-store and online.


Using items from Listen Flavor, we made this colorful yet edgy coordinate! Bold reds and purples pop on the Oiran Rock Girl Short-Sleeved T-Shirt, featuring an illustration of a sassy gun-wielding courtesan. The  Switching Tulle Petticoat Skirt with Ribbon adds both complimentary colors and a cute feminine shape! The Unicorn Epoxy Necklace gives a final touch of fun and vibrance.


Unicorn Epoxy Necklace - $22

Using items from SEX POT ReVeNGe, we made this punk coordinate with a rock gal edge! We love the versatility of the Belted Ring Bondage Camisole- it's snakeskin print wrap can be arranged in any way you'd like to match your outfit! The BLACK STUDS Cardigan and BLACK CROW BONDAGE Skirt add more black color along with flowing fabrics. For the final rock and roll touch we added the SENTINEL II wristwatch. With snakeskin pattern details and decked out in dozens of Swarovski crystals, this piece is will surely catch attention!


SENTINEL II wristwatch - $209 $104.50

For our next coordinate we created a black cat theme using items from PUTUMAYO! Antique key images and a spooky black cat stand out on the Gate Keeper Long T giving a subtle gothic style perfectly complimented by the fluffy Trump Tulle Skirt. But no outfit is complete without a matching bag- the Embroidery Line pochette has cute gothic embroidery and a small lightweight shape. The Nyanko wrist watch completes the look with a matching black cat design!


For our last coordinate we'd like to spotlight one of our favorite items, the Yoh x TOKYO REBEL Collaboration T-Shirt! This shirt was designed special for us by artist Yoh. It features an elegant lolita cat girl with an iconic New York skyline silhouette- and of course the text "Tokyo Rebel New York City"! We paired it here with a CHAIN STUDS 2WAY asymmetry skirt and SKULL BLACK STONE necklace by SEX POT to show one of the many ways it can be worn.




Come check out all these items and more in-store or online~!
