History of Lolita Fashion, your thoughts and opinions are needed!

I am currently working on an extensive lolita fashion panel for Anime North 2014. The panel will be name the History of Lolita Fashion. Unlike quick historical notes that we usually use in 101 panels at convention, I want to put my focus in creating a panel, narrating important changes in lolita fashion from 2000 to 2014. I take apart each year and try to inform my audience of important information for each year, such as:

  • Significant changes in brands

  • The opening,closing,launching of new sites, brands, communities and events

  • Important and popular prints for each year

  • Changes or the creation of EGL and similar communities

  • Appearances of famous lolita icons in cons, events or other countries

  • Focus on Japan related changes in lolita fashion

  • Noticeable trends throughout the years

At this moment the panel contain over 100 slides and I am looking for lolitas who have an opinion on the changes in our community to help.

I am posting this with the hopes of gaining more understanding and getting lolias to answer the following question: what events and changes in lolita fashion were significant within the community and to you?

It is helpful to include as much information as possible. Links, year of the event and a detail account of what you know would help me out tremendously. I have acquire a lot of knowledge and it would help for me to know what lolitas think are the important changes because, as of right now my panel is very subjective.

I do plan to record the panel and present it online so everyone can benefit from it : )
