Calling all exchange students: Vantan, a Japanese fashion school, is offering two year-long courses on local style. One, Tokyo Street Fashion, educates students on both the underground and established fashion scene, while the other, Girls Brand Planning, is dedicated specifically to the Shibuya "gal" scene. All you need to attend: $9,000 and basic Japanese fluency. [Racked National]
