Maniera Magazine Cover Contest

Thanks to Julie Hastings’ wonderful photography, I won the April cover. 🙂

The theme was Harajuku Fashion and we had to choose from either “Gothic Lolita” or “Visual-kei” which literally means “visual category” in Japanese. This is a fashion that spread in Japan from music bands that wore cute or elaborate fashion and these bands became known as “Visual-kei bands” because they not only provided musical entertainment but also “visual entertainment” as well.

I chose to go with the “Visual-kei” category and had so much fun styling this! It also helped that I live only 20 minutes from Harajuku in RL and grew up visiting the place on my weekend fashion explorations.

Thank you Julie for a wonderful photograph! I had so much fun styling this and it was a great team work!
