“Since I was a child, I was always genuinely happy to see girls wearing clothes with frills and lace, looking like princesses and feeling cute and pretty.  I developed BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT to make clothes with that at their heart.” That is the quote from Akinori Isobe, the CEO of BTSSB, which adorned Anime Next’s website and was the call to action for East Coast lolita’s.  So without further ado, here is the Baby runway show!

Baby the Stars Shine Bright Fashion Show – Part 1

welcome to the btssb fashion show

The ever lovely Grace braved a 3 hour train ride then joined me for another hour and half by car to make it down to AnimeNext on Saturday.  We were determined to see the Baby the Stars Shine Bright fashion show.  Well worth the journey.  The show was stunning.  Best of all, I love that the models are locals (mostly) from the J-Fashion scene in the Tri-State area.  Real girls with a real love for lolita.  That passion resonated on stage.

Somehow our loli-posse managed to score front row seats.  Yay!  Not so yay is the bad hair day and derp face I was making.  I look like a granny in a bow ( ̄へ ̄)

Now on to the show!  The show kicked off with Alice and the Pirates and concluded with Baby.  And who better to make the first grand entrance other than MC Melod¥ Doll herself!
