The full-scale Steampunk event STEAM GARDEN started in Japan in 2012. In only 2 years, the size of the event has grown substantially with a considerably high level of fashion integrity.
Over the past 2 years, Steampunk has gradually spread underground creating collaborations with other fashions such as Gothic, Lolita, Pirate, Western, Japanese Traditional and Modern Girl. In addition, places which offer Steampunk clothing and goods have increased making their way into the general market.
The chances are good that this fashion evolves even more with outfitting makers which already actively incorporate Steampunk fashion popping up here and there.
