Uehara Kumiko, Kanou Masumi, Tachibana Saki, Mitsuba, and Nakamura Tomomi are responsible for the vast majority of everything ever produced by Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Alice and the Pirates, two of the top Lolita brands in the world. The beginning of the largest Q&A we've ever done!

Part 1 of 2!







Yumi Fujiwara is one of the world's foremost Lolita designers and businesspeople. As founder, president and chief designer of Osaka-based Innocent World - one of the world's most renowned classic Lolita brands - she has had a direct hand in guiding the fashion as a whole to where it is today. Here, she shares her insights into her own influences and thoughts on fashion and design.







Only a few short years ago, Midori burst onto the Lolita scene to quickly become one of the most sought-after style idols in the industry.  She is now one of the main models for both the GLB and KERA, as she's versatile enough to wear Lolita, Kodona and punk fashion. She also works heavily with Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, appearing in their advertisements and at events.







Misako Aoki is one of the top Lolita icons in the world today. As one in Japan's first and only class of official government "kawaii ambassadors", Misako has traveled the world to promote Lolita fashion - including a visit to our store! She continues to appear as a model in the Gothic & Lolita Bible and has just recently released her first book, "Misako Aoki's Kawaii Revolution".







The first in our new, ongoing series of interviews with Japanese fashion icons is with multi-talented AKIRA! Akira juggles a music career as frontwoman for her band DISACODE with occasional acting and full-time modeling for popular magazines KERA and Gothic & Lolita Bible, as well as for brands including SEX POT ReVeNGe, Alice and the Pirates and more. She's best known here for her punk, boy style and kodona modeling.
