and your avatar is Nana Kitade..nice!, i am a fan of Nana Kitade. while i was searching for the word "KAWAII" which means "cuteness", i found this link about Japanese street fashion, lolita fashion according to this site, is a fashion subculture in Japan that is primarily influenced by Victorian children's clothing as well as costumes from the Rococo period. Lolita has made this into a unique fashion by adding gothic and original design elements to the look. From this, Lolita fashion has evolved into several different sub styles and has created a devoted subculture in Japan. The Lolita look consists primarily of a knee length skirt or dress, headdress, blouse, petticoat, knee high socks or stockings and rocking horse or high heel/platform shoes. Style types Gothic Lolita Gothic Lolita (known in Japan as gosurori, "goth-loli") is a mixture of the Gothic and Lolita fashion. The origins of the Japanese Gothic style can be traced back to the English New Wave Movement during the 1980s: however, the Japanese Gothic scene is fundamentally different from the Gothic subcultures of the west. Sweet Lolita Sweet Lolita (amaloli) is heavily influenced by Rococo styles as well as Victorian and Edwardian children's clothing. Focusing on the child and fantasy aspects of Lolita, the Sweet Lolita style adopts the basic Lolita format and uses lighter colors and child fantasy themes in its design. Classical Lolita Classical Lolita is a more mature style of Lolita that focuses on Baroque and Rocaille styles. This look can be seen as the more sophisticated, mature Lolita style because of its use of small, intricate patterns, as well more muted colors on the fabric and in the overall design. The colors in the classic Lolita style are lighter than those in the gothic Lolita, but are not as light as those used in sweet Lolita .[12] Empire waist dresses are also used to add to the more mature look of the classic Lolita. Shoes and accessories are less whimsical and more functional. Jewelry with intricate designs is also common. The makeup used in classic Lolita is often a more muted version of the sweet Lolita makeup, with an emphasis placed on natural coloring. This Lolita style uses slimmer dress silhouettes than its counterparts to add to the mature style. An example of the classical Lolita brands are Juliette et Justine, Innocent World, Victorian Maiden and Mary Magdalene. Punk Lolita Punk Lolita (or Lolita Punk) adds punk fashion elements to Lolita fashion. Motifs that are usually found in punk clothing, such as tattered fabric, ties, safety pins and chains, screen-printed fabrics, plaids, and short, androgynous hairstyles are incorporated into the Lolita look. The most popular garments are blouses or cutsews and skirts, although dresses and jumper skirts are also worn. Common footwear includes boots, Mary Janes or oxfords with platforms. [13] Common Punk Lolita brands are A+Lidel, Putumayo, h. NAOTO and Na+H. Many of the Japanese punk Lolita fashion brands take influence from London's famous Camden Town Markets. Vivienne Westwood, who, though not a Lolita designer, has items and collections that reflect Lolita sensibilities, especially in her Japanese collections, is popular in the punk Lolita scene. Wa Lolita Wa Lolita (or Waloli) combines traditional Japanese clothing styles with the Lolita fashion. Wa Lolita usually consists of kimono or hakama modified to fit with common Lolita garments. The bottom half of the garment is altered to accommodate a petticoat, or a kimono-style blouse is used as a top to accompany a plain Lolita skirt. Outerwear can include haori or adult-sized hifu-vests. The shoes and accessories used in this style are typical of traditional Japanese garb including kanzashi flowers, and geta, zori, or Okobo. These shoes are often used in place of the normal Lolita platform and high-heeled shoes. Qi Lolita Qi Lolita is a similar style but uses Chinese clothing and accessories in place of Japanese. Usually this includes qipao and cheongsam-dresses modified to accommodate a petticoat. Accessories include platform-slippers for footwear and bun-covers as hair accessories. Hime Lolita Hime, or "Princess," Lolita is characterized by a princess-style look based upon the European aristocratic style.

Yes i have heard about lolita fashion! :) Its like the goth and old Victorian look.. i guess thats what i think though . Like the band called Malice mizer, the guitarist , Mana, he is totally into Lolita Fashion! i think goth loli, his fashion brands is called moi-meme-moitie, many loli clothes. Ah! and loli fashion has alot of different catogory such as Gothic loli as mention Mana is famous for it, his brands but he is more to the elegant gothic type but still consider goth loli, and there is Sweet loli The trying to act cute type, where the girls will dress in pink and laces big ribbons and so on .. And there is the classic type where they dress very classy like the Fullmetal alchemist anime like formal clothes , with suitcase, And lastly the punk loli, i think my favourite type!:) such as sexpot revenge brand , my favourite .. Well, i am looking at wiki now, just shortening the word for you, hehe And there is the not so famous lolita fashion such as the Waloli where they wear kimono , i think bands like Kagrra is in this fashion genre the Waloli , And the Qiloli where they wear chinese qipao .. And lastly the ouji the male version loli where guys wear blouses , hat and so on , band slike plastic trees is in this genre of fashion, well, as you can see the anime xxxholic is in the Waloli (yuko) and the rain and fairy lady is in the goth loli, As for paradise kiss Arashi is the punk loli and george is the ouji type. Thats all for now, hope i dont give you a headache in reading all those stuff without paragraphs! sorry! :)
