AWA Fashion Show - Saturday at Noon

Join us on Saturday at 12 PM in the Main Events Hall for a showcase of beautiful Japanese Street Fashion, modeled by lovely fashionistas from our southeast J-Fashion communities.

Though the styles have evolved over the years, street fashion is still prominent in Japan today. Young adults can often be found wearing subculture attire in large urban fashion districts such as Harajuku, Shinjuku and Shibuya. There are many styles and variations of each, which can be found in popular magazines such as KERA.

Indie Designer Fashions: Indie designers, both in the US and around the world have developed their own interpretation of the J-Fashion styles. The models will display a variety of styles including Lolita (Gothic, Sweet, Classic) among others.

Baby, The Stars Shine Bright is one of the most famous and popular Japanese clothing brands among Lolita fashion. BTSSB's designs focus on classic and sweet Lolita looks, while its sister brand ALICE and the PIRATES features noticeably darker designs and men's looks. BTSSB will have a booth in the Dealer’s Room with clothing, accessories and more available for purchase.


AWA BTSSB Tea Party 

Join us on Sunday at 4 PM in the Galleria for a delightful and tasty event with Baby, the Stars Shine Bright fashion designer Masumi Kano. The theme is “Belle Charmante Après-midi” which combines the charm and beauty of the south with the elegance, grace and sophistication of BTSSB
