I had a wonderful time at Animegacon, as Guest of Honor. It’s inspiring to see how international designers, like Doll Delight (above), are taking inspiration from Japanese street styles and giving it a fresh, colorful face.

The “La Carmina fashion show” was actually a showcase of five non-Japanese designers, influenced by Jrock and Gothic Lolita style.
