EGL Fashion Icon Angelic Pretty Makes U.S. Debut at Pacific Media Expo
LOS ANGELES – Angelic Pretty designers Maki and Asuka will appear as Guests of Honor during Pacific Media Expo (PMX), Nov. 9-11. For the first time, American Lolita attendees will be able to purchase items from the famed Gothic Lolita brand in an exclusive Japanese boutique, open only during PMX.
“Fashion trends from Asia are a huge part of Pacific Media Expo. After the huge outpouring of support for Novala Takemoto last year, we wanted to keep the momentum going with additional superstars like Angelic Pretty this year,” said Mike Tatsugawa, PMX Convention Chair. “We're really honored that they have accepted our invitation to participate in this year's event and we know their fans in the U.S. are excited about meeting them and seeing their latest designs.”
The Sweet Lolita fashion designers will discuss their work and reveal an exclusive preview of the new fall line to a limited audience during the Angelic Pretty Fashion Brunch. Fans will also have the opportunity to converse with the Guests of Honor during a panel open to general PMX attendees.
Angelic Pretty is a leading purveyor of Sweet Lolita fashion, which emphasizes Victorian-style dress and aims to convey the look and innocence of ornate porcelain dolls. Maki and Asuka appear at PMX by special arrangement of Cosplay Oneesan.
“By bringing events such as these to America, Cosplay Oneesan hopes to strengthen the foundation between fashion and community, while taking the exposure of Japanese fashion and its enthusiasts abroad to the next level,” said Lynda Leung, Cosplay Oneesan CEO.
