Lolita Fashion: Costume or Culture 2/5

Misako at Tokyo Rebel in 2010
With a rapid growing community, Lolita fashion has become a popular topic. As such it's important to bring to light the often misconceptions associated this Japanese fashion.  That it is not a costume, but a fashion.  However there is also a continual debate of whether it is a "lifestyle;" by adopting the fashion does one then adopt characteristics associated with "Lolita" fashion to be a true Lolita?

"Lolita Fashion: Costume or Culture" is become a popular event for the community, not only because of the topic but their speakers.  Japan Society has invited Misako Aoki, the former Kawaii Ambassador and founder of the Japan Lolita Association will be speaking about her thoughts on this debate of fashion versus culture.

She will be accompanied by two famous Lolita bloggers: Caro from FYeah Lolita and Christina from Ramble Rori. The lecture will be moderated by Gwyinn Galitzer.  Both ladies have dedicated themselves to dispelling myths and bringing insight to anyone interested on what Lolita fashion is really about.

There will be a small meet and greet wine reception after the lecture, so dress your best and learn what your fellow fashion enthusiasts have to say! As well as get an opportunity to meet a lot of well-dressed attendees and find out what Lolita fashion is really all about.
