That’s right, we’re heading out over the next few months to catch up on the best Japanese festivals the UK has to offer:
Japanese Art Festival (Aug 21st/22nd) – with events ranging from a lolita fashion show to traditional Japanese music, there’s something for everyone. Don’t miss out on the manga workshops and kawaii culture panel from 6%DokiDoki!
Japan Matsuri (Sept 18th) – judging by the runaway success of last year’s festival, we’re looking forward to a full-on fun-filled day!
Hyper Japan (Oct 1st/2nd/3rd) – from cosplay carnivals to hand-made sushi, it’s going to be a great three day celebration of the best of Japan! We’d also like to mention that HJ has put out a call for models (see here for more details) so if you’d love to be transformed by the Kera magazine stylists, working with amazing brands like Innocent World & Angelic Pretty, what are you waiting for? Did we also mention that you get to keep your outfit after the show? (I’d be all over this if I wasn’t too tall…) Good luck!
If you’re actively involved in the Japanese fashion sub-culture scene in the UK and attending these events, we’d love to talk to you! From gyaru to gothic lolita we want your opinions for forthcoming interviews!
Samuel and I are also working on something pretty fab, so keep your eyes open for a special announcement from us in the next few weeks! Keep your fingers crossed…
