Decoding Dress EXTRA | Self Expression & Feminism | Lolita Fashion


(upbeat music) – I know it means a lot of
things for different people, so really just
for me personally, well of course I
love self-expression, and that’s why I got into street
fashion in the first place. But also, I’m also a seamstress, and so working
with fine garments is something that
I absolutely love. So getting to be a part
of wearing a fine garment, it was just like the
cherry on top for me. It also encompasses
a lot of things that are kind of built
into my personality. I like hyperfeminine things. I like period wear,
historical fashion. I’m a perfectionist, so I like
having everything in place. And the idea of Lolita
being, as we call it, instead of wearing an outfit,
you’re wearing a coordinate. Meaning that every piece
of what you’re wearing is a piece of your entire look. And I find Lolita
to be very feminist. And I wear it as a
representation of my feminism because it’s something
that is feminine devoid of sexuality, separated
from actually being a woman. There’s plenty of men in Lolita who wear the feminine fashion. So it’s harnessed femininity
that can be appreciated and loved on an aesthetic level, on an innocent, enjoyable level, without having any
weights of being attached to over sexualization
of the female body. You know we’re
really not confused, or delusional, or
playing a role. We’re just enjoying something
on a very innate level of just enjoying
aesthetics, and beauty, and feminism, and femininity.
