Lolita and JFashion Zine

Explore lolita and japanese fashion by subscribing to a quarterly zine illustrated by artists around Australia.

I am a member of the Canberra Lolitas, a group which focuses upon wearing Japanese fashion based upon Victorian clothing. We are also interested in Japanese fashion and streetwear from Harajuku. I would like to create more awareness of japanese and kawaii fashion in the form of a zine. The zine would feature a number of different artists from Australia and contain information about the fashion, drawings, tutorials and other small illustrations. The aim of the zine is to educate people more about the fashion, in a fun and entertaining format.

The project would be for Australian lolitas, artists interested in drawing japanese fashion, students studying fashion in TAFE or university, and school students who have elected to study Japanese culture. The zine complements current studies in their fields. This also allows artists a platform to release work and receive feedback, as well as further develop their illustration skills. The zine can be used as a study material to analyse trends in the fashion and highlight areas of interests by Australian lolitas in comparison to their peers.

Why you should support
Lolita and JFashion Zine?

This project is an amazing way to bring together people who are interested in the fashion with artists and other creatives in a fun and entertaining format. This project also supports my personal goal of helping people discover and understand kawaii and lolita fashion.

Which resources do you need for the project?

Funding for the zine, mentors from experienced zine artists, support from educators in Japanese culture and fashion industry, mentor used to performing editorial work

Where will Lolita and JFashion Zine
go in the future?

The project will be run at a pilot of 1 year (4 issues issued on a quarterly basis). Zines will be issued on a subscription basis and if successful will continue beyond the 4 issues. I’m hoping that this zine can bring about joy and more interest in lolita and japanese fashion!
