Lolita fashion has the longest history as a Japanese original fashion style. In this history, various derivative styles were continuously born. However, the proper classic Lolita style and the sweet Lolita style with various different patterns and colors are currently the most popular styles with other derivative styles decreasing. In addition, the only Gothic style remaining seems to be from enthusiasts of pure gothic fashion. Of the 6 names featured here, all of them are related to GLP (Gothic, Lolita & Punk club). The GLP was established by Ai-san in 2009 when she was a student at Waseda University. Since then it has been sharing the charm of Gothic, Lolita, and Punk fashions with Japan and the world through activities such as fashion shows and parties. The appeal of this circle is that anyone can participate with ease by only liking this fashion and not needing expert knowledge. The members want to enjoy the unexpected so they pursue fashion which is more attractive than the genuine article without needing to look like the genuine article. They say the purpose of their fashion is to become what you want to become.
