We saved the best for last. This year's NDK featured a high-end Lolita boutique from Saxony LLC, a Tokyo outfit with a shop in San Francisco. The elegantly dressed proprietress explained to us how the Victorian-frilly Lolita look that originated in the Harajuku district of Tokyo empowers women looking for an alternative to mainstream fashions that cover less and less of the body, leaving little to the imagination. Lolita is a more feminine form of self-expression with a modern twist. The beauty of these garments, she pointed out, is in the details: little cupcakes in the lace edging of a skirt matches the cupcake print on the fabric; dresses come equipped with pockets and other functional attributes -- they are meant to be worn, not intended only as costumes.
