Gothic Lolita Comes To The Victoria And Albert Museum

Kitty and the Bulldog: Lolita fashion and the influence of Britain is a new exhibition set to open at the V&A Museum in London on 23 April.

According to the V&A website "Kitty and the Bulldog explores the way in which British fashion - notably Victoriana, Punk and Gothic - has influenced the development of Japan's 'Lolita' style, a cult fashion movement whose defining feature has been its preoccupation with cuteness, or 'kawaii'. The display features nine outfits recently bought in Tokyo for the V&A's permanent collections."

Kitty and the Bulldog is running as an offshoot of the Museum's exhibition British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age.

The exhibition is located in the Toshiba Gallery, room 45. It will be open until 27 January 2013, so if you have a trip planned to London any time over the next 10 months, check it out. Admission is free!

The V&A website is well worth exploring. They have sections on Kimono design, Japanese design and lots more on Japan.
