Punk lolita photoshoot: Victoria, queen of hearts.


It's no secret that punk lolita isn't as common as it once was. Also cutesy prints have taken over, leaving traditional woven patterns behind.

I love tartan and plaid patterns. And so did, coincidently, the biggest trendsetter in Victorian England- queen Victoria herself. In fact, the whole can/tartan system was invented by the Victorians (or so my lovely reference books say).

In this co-ord, I wanted to embody my love for punk lolita, the kilt and plaid. Hope you like it!
