The Jojo pose comparison repository mentioned in the video: (Dead link, sorry)

Most of the leads for which designers and artists to look up were from the Hirohiko Araki's Japanese Wikipedia page. Then, the images that make the comparisons were recovered from various sources from online searches.

Majority of the jojos fashion is actually inspired by Prince and that’s from Karz, Josuke and even to Pucci and other etc. Well Prince is Araki’s favourite musician

Jolyne and Trish una's fashion style is inspired by alternative fashion, also diavolo and abbacchio have clear goth vibes
