"Harajuku Girl"

Hey everyone,
I've been getting a lot of people recently saying "...oh, like Harajuku" when I tell them about lolita, or stating it as a Japanese fashion, whether when someone asks what I'm wearing or in my current class project.
I've never really been sure how to respond, because I know Harajuku is a place and not a fashion, but I'm not sure how to correctly tell them that's not the right way of putting it.
It'd be great if you guys could help me out :)
Thanks!

Edit:
Thank you everyone for your comments, I've found the kind of response I was aiming for - that lolita originated in Harajuku, and how to word that to people.
I don't know if I didn't word things clear enough but I understand people in passing can think what they want, but when I'm actually talking to them I'd like to have a better response than "yeah, kind of". And I noticed some people thought along the same lines as me where when I hear "Harajuku girl" I automatically think of Gwen Stefani and the way she portrays Harajuku, and I want to stray away from that concept ^^;
I do agree with a lot of you that Harajuku girl is a better remark than Bo Peep or Strawberry Shortcake though!
