Lolita Garden

Lolita is a popular fashion substyle which started in Japan, heavily influenced by Victorian, Edwardian and Rococo eras.  Essential elements of a lolita outfit are one pieces, jumper skirts, blouses, petticoats, lace, frills, ribbons and a fine attention to detail, as well as the ‘cupcake’ or A-line silhouette.  The Lolita lifestyle doesn't stop at fashion and there are many activities to partake in.  Otakon's Lolita Garden is a place for fans of J fashion (lolita and streetwear) to gather and relax, as well as have some fun!
