Japanese Fashion Series: What is Lolita Fashion
Lolita is a street fashion and a subculture in Japan known for its intricate and delicate doll-like look. The clothing is inspired mainly by the rocco and victorian eras but also take influences from the current fashion trends. The fashion covers a larage variety of substyles and generally worn by females as there is no male counterpart of Lolita. Men who desires to participate in the fashion often turn to Ouji (a unisex fashion related to Lolita) or Japanese gothic fashion. However, cross-dressing males (also known as brololitas in the west) do exist. One of the most famous Lolita icons, Mana is a cross-dressing male.
