We’ve been on a fun roller coaster of coordinate love as participants in the recent Japanese Street Fashion show held on the DragonCon Silk Road track in Atlanta Ga. Attendance was well over 60,000 and we had a ballroom full of interested and eager JFashionistas from every kei of every corner of the land. We made new friends, new fans and after one more contribution to the track, found ourselves in the Daily Dragon, the DragonCon famous newspaper.
The focus is really on fashion right now as we switch into the cooler months. As mentioned these past few weeks the looks are full of food and frills. Excitement and partying are the way to go and the clothes have to stand up to that kind of wild treatment. So what do you do? You wear an apron! That’s right. Aprons are awesome in JFashion. Here are some from a few brands, some Loli and some non. Gotta keep those coordinates clean!
In addition to the cool covers for coordinates during a nosh are shawls, duppattas and chenis with a Japanese spin. h.Naoto debuted his new line with several and we’re going crazy for all of them. Elegant steampunk styles as well as EGL are sporting these long printed accessories that coordinate well with these cute outfits. It’s a dream come true for those of us who adore wrapping ourselves in elegance. Now we can swaddle ourselves in numerous brands!
There are so many cool events coming up that require a keen eye for fashion. So we’re getting ready to start our series on dressing up and daring to be bold as it gets cold with bright, big bold colours that are untraditional for this time of year. We’re looking beyond winter whites, to platinum and black so deep and rich it’s practically blue. The designer list is long and we want to hear your favourites as well. While scanning our site, take a moment to drop us a line on what colours you’re wearing this season. What are you doing to “do you?” We can’t wait to see it! Tag us and tell us about your love for RNG and all the cool designers in your kawaii life.
