Along with the designers, President and founder of BABY, Akinori Isobe will also be present. The newest addition to the team is Putumayo with designer Shunsuke Hasegawa.
Models returning are Misako Aoki and Midori Fukasawa. AKIRA and Yui Minakata will be making their US debuts. Idol Aya Ikeda will be featured as a guest model.
In addition, there will be a special performance by silk aerialist Mai Yamamoto and an unannounced mystery guest. The fashion show is sponsored by Dior, Gothic Lolita Wigs, and Dolluxe. Model applications for the show have been opened.
Lolita tea party tickets are also available to purchase. Saturday's tea party is BtSSB & AatP themed and Sunday's tea party is Putumayo themed. (Note: the tickets are separate from the convention badge)
We hope to see as many of you as possible at the con! For the quickest updates, you can like the Anime Matsuri page or view the Houston Lolita Community facebook group.
And for a final note, Isobe's picture is Godzilla because he's a very big Godzilla fan!
