Frill - Why a Lolita Convention?

The excitement about FRILL, from all the Lolitas I chat with, both in person and online (and from everywhere in the US), is truly awe-inspiring and breathtaking.
We are all at various level of experience with the fashion that we love. We use social media to the utmost to learn from others. Whether it's sales, coords, makeup, wigs, accessories, fashions and so much more. We even go to the various anime conventions (of which there are so many) both large and small in order to meet other Lolitas and have a Lolita-type experience. Maybe a Fashion Show, a Panel on some Lolita topic, or even a Lolita Tea Party or meetup of some kind. But we're only an after thought at these cons.

So it's time for Lolita Convention BY Lolitas FOR Lolitas. Frill is about Lolitas, from all over the US (and potentially all over the world) being able to meet and network with other Lolitas of similar interests and styles. Sharing experiences. Learning from each other. Making new girlfriends. Being in a safe, enjoyable and entertaining environment. With lots of pleasurable thing to do like shopping, sharing, eating yummy food and just having the most fabulius time of our lives!

Our Mission:
"Affrilliation wishes  to provide an engaging and compelling convention for the American Lolita Community. It is our goal to foster communication and education of diverse lolita values and aesthetics to the community at large and to those just entering the lolita fashion. Further we wish to promote the culture and fashion of lolita in the United States."

It all starts on Saturday, June 9th with lots of events and activities. Register here!

Panels - The panel topics have been selected to have the broadest appeal to the Lolita community.
Some of the panels will be:

Shopping - Boutique and Consignment Shop

Frill convention will be an event where the American Lolita can engage in conversation, learning, shopping, and networking. We intend to showcase the work of major Japanese designers as well as Independent designers. We also wish to provide opportunities for Lolitas at every level to advance their own personal taste and style by participating in panels and events related to Lolita culture."
