Cartoon Fashion Shows
‘Khaotic Kouture' at Anime Central of Chicago Convention
Otaku female models reigned, but Decora, the rave-like threads, and even some Steampunked fashion were on the stage. Visual-kei was visual for the pretty boys, and Lolita showed adult women dressed up as pre-pubescent children.
Implications - Dressing up is a pastime that never seems to go away. Whether it's adults or kids, both demographics have found comfort in the world of cosplaying where they're free to express themselves in a playful matter. Incorporating the world of cartoons and fantastical elements is a great idea for brands looking to think outside the box when designing collections.
