Lolita, Gothic Lolita, and Tokyo Girls' Styles from Japan are rarely seen in the U.S. but some of Japan's most famous brands were presented in a live fashion show accompanied by live and filmed musical performances. "The Tokyo fashion scene is very exciting," Valerie Steele explains. "Japanese subculture and street styles, such as the Gothic Lolita look, are attracting more and more attention in the West, so we wanted to be sure to include them in The Museum at FIT's upcoming exhibition, Japan Fashion Now, which opens on September 17. In the meantime, we're delighted to give New Yorkers a preview with a live fashion show." More details about this event can be found in the press release.
