I'm contextualizing Lolita in popular culture for my thesis, but found myself coming up a little short in one department. Could anyone out there tell me when brands like Angelic Pretty, Mary Magdalene, Victorian Maiden and the like were established?
Specifically, I'm really looking for brand stores that opened in the early part of the 1990s, a period that falls within the worst of Japan's economic recession. Right now I have Baby (1988), metamorphose (1993) and Atelier Boz (1995).
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
EDIT: I edited the date on Baby. I'm a retard and sick so I hit the wrong key. DX
