UK Kawaii Fashion Spotlight "Roxie Sweetheart" & "Atelier Dormir"

Posted by Pixie Late

Hello lovelies!

About a month ago Gothic Lolita Wigs and two UK indie brands collaborated for a fashion shoot with me in London. The two shop owners actually models their own clothes and accessories in this fashion shoot which I find very interesting as I love seeing fashion designers wearing their own beautiful creations. We know of the big brands but I think it's high time we appreciate the indie brands....starting with ones based in the UK. These two brands have very different looks and therefore it's very interesting to see them side by side.

I was wearing my own creations too from my shop Pixie Bunny but I would like to focus on their shops for our Fashion Spotlight right now.

First up on Kawaii Fashion Spotlight is an indie accessories brand based in the UK called Roxie Sweetheart.

Roxie Sweetheart; Cute and Kawaii designs with a twisted edge - for the Harajuku girl in you!

The words 'Cute' and 'Kawaii' ultimately have the same meaning - however with Roxie Sweetheart the word 'Cute' relates to the British origin of the brand (and inspiration from vintage childrens illustration and toys) The word 'Kawaii' relates to the Japanese influence on the designs - fashion, culture and music

Roxie Sweetheart takes inspiration from diverse sources - from Tokyo’s vibrant fashion scene to vintage illustrations; a stunning selection of unique pieces that combine the sweet with the street, and incorporate gorgeous, colourful and edgy hand-drawn designs.

Here Roxie's owner and designer is wearing the Gothic Fairytale design on the circle skirt dress with a creepy cute look! She is also wearing the Glitter Bat & Locket Necklace, Bat Hairslides, Eyeball Rose Headpiece and a range of other Roxie Sweetheart jewellery, as well as a black headbow by Atelier Dormir. She has combined the look with the stunning Rockstar Wigs Countess in Lilaque and Black Patent Lolita Shoes.

Check out Roxie's website and online shop at www.roxiesweetheart.co.uk

We will now revert back to the classic Lolita look, in particular a more Gothic style with another UK indie brand Atelier Dormir. They selll Gothic Lolita Undergarments and Loungewear that oozes opulence and decadence. 

Lolita (ロリータ) is a popular street fashion in Japan for those not familiar about this type of fashion. It is known for its intricate and delicate doll-like look. The modest yet ornate clothing is inspired mainly by the Rococo and Victorian eras, but also takes influences from current fashion trends. Atelier Dormir takes inspiration from Japan's amazing and bustling Lolita scene to the British new romantics movement; Eccentric and flamboyant fashion with femininity and decadence at the heart of every design.

For our shoot, Laelette who is the designer and owner of Atelier Dormir, wore a decadent gothic triple ruffle jumper skirt and matching headbow with a gothic dolly look. With various accessories such as a beautiful 3D gothic rose ring by Roxie Sweet Heart. Paired together with Gothic Lolita Wig's Baby Dollight wig in a vibrant red, against the simplistic black of Laelette's design the vibrant red changes the look entirely from Gothic Dolly to Striking Vampiress.

That's it for now dollies! Til next time!

Welcome to my Kawaii Corner!

Posted by Pixie Late

Hello dolls,

First of all, welcome to my first post here at Pixie’s Kawaii Corner! I’ve been a spokesmodel, stylist and kawaii fashionista for a while now, and I love all kinds of kawaii fashion styles ranging from Lolita fashion to Gyaru/Gal Fashion!

So in a nutshell, my Kawaii Corner will feature these sections:

  • Kawaii fashion, hairstyles and accessories
  • Brand/Shop Spotlight
  • Cosplays and Character Inspired looks
  • Kawaii makeup and other merchandise or even food.

I get a lot of questions about where I get my makeup, accessories, clothes and shoes from, so on every Outfit of the Day post I will include links to all of the shops and brands (hopefully they have an online website, which will be the case most of the time). After all, sharing is caring!

Another part of this blog is the ‘Brand Spotlight’. This section will feature what I consider a Kawaii brand, albeit a Japanese brand, an indie brand or even an internationally recognized brand. You can contact me on(________) if you own a fashion brand which can go under kawaii fashion. There are no restrictions as to where you are based at as long as you are a shop who sells authentic products (no replicas please!) or a designer of your own brand.

I started cosplaying earlier this year and I absolutely love it. What is a better way to satisfy your inner geek than to appreciate your fandom by dressing up in your favourite character or even do an ‘inspired’ look? Since Gothic Lolita Wigs, Rockstar Wigs and Cosplay Wig along with Dolluxe covers an extensive style of wigs, I will show you which ones you can wear to cosplay certain characters. 

Most of the time I make my own cosplays, so this blog will also give you sneak peeks of exclusive handmade cosplays by yours truly!

❀ Today I will start with my summer OOTD ❀

Hair: Gothic Lolita Wigs Countess in Coco
Accessories: Lunieshop.com
Top: GRL (Japanese brand)
Skirt: MA*RS (Japanese gyaru brand)
Shoes: Liz Lisa (Japanese gyaru brand)
