An article on lolita fashion and feminism.

Hello, lolitas!

Recently, there was an article in the Sydney Morning Herald, regarding the gothic lolita movement in Japan. It made reference to Shimotsuma Monogatari and likened the subculture to that of feminist ideals and women's rights. Hopefully, this won't start up a large argument, but will tickle your brain and make you contemplate the underlying meanings of lolita fashion.

The girl pictured is from FRUiTS (Volume 34, I think). She is wearing the Emily Temple Cute rose-embroidery shirring onepiece.

Enjoy!
