Kitai fuku ga aru

TSUNEKI Netaro

[Japan]

Mami, a college girl who admires Lolita fashion while still afraid of straying from the female image that people around her expect, sets her true self free under the influence of her parttime job coworker OZAWA. The story sharply highlights themes of diversity and self-affirmation using “Lolita fashion,” a uniquely Japanese fashion subculture. The story created a buzz by virtue of its being entirely supervised by the fashion magazine KERA.
