Moi-même-Moitié is a brand created in 1999 by MALICE MIZER and Moi dix Mois guitarist Mana.

The brand name consists of the French words Moi- me, même- self and Moitié- half. With the meaning of “One’s alter ego as well as one’s self,” the term was coined by founder Mana.

Moi-même-Moitié is one of the few Japanese Lolita fashion brands that focuses on an androgynous aesthetic. The brand offers Elegant Gothic Lolita and Elegant Gothic Aristocrat fashion to all persons seeking beauty.

Puvithel

Puvithel is an alternative fashion designer based in Pittsburgh, USA who has been making and designing original handmade jewelry, accessories, clothing and handbags for J-fashion and alternative styles since 2015.

Puvithel is about unabashed, self-expression and spans many styles, including punk, gothic, lolita, and menhera. Regardless of style, Puvithel's items are loud - inspired by the in-your-face aesthetic of American gothic fashion. Puvithel believes fashion is a beneficial form of expression, a belief that is imbued in every item she makes. Every series has its own style and narrative to aid you in telling your own story.

Puvithel is debuting a surprise new line at the Tekko fashion show this year!

Baroque

Baroque was once a company that produced antique dresses kissed by darkness, mixing muted tones with a classic style. Now, over a decade later, we have continued to dream up new visions, focusing on both dark, dramatic pieces and original prints. No longer limited to antique sensibilities, we offer a variety of styles. Take to the sea in our cruise-inspired line "Salon Baroque," or give your style a touch of sweetness with our adorable "Charlotte" line.

Aurelian Accolade Tea

Welcome to Tekko’s annual celebration of Lolita fashion, the Aurelian Accolade Tea! This event will be held on Sunday, April 5th, 2020 from 10AM to 1PM at the stunning Hotel Monaco. Formal high tea service will be provided along with a light brunch designed exclusively for us by Hotel Monaco’s talented chef. As always, there will be gift bags, raffles, games, and more! Tickets sell out fast, so keep an eye on social media!

What is Lolita fashion? This Rococo-inspired style is usually presented as a modest attire featuring a full skirt supported by a petticoat. Originating in Harajuku, this fashion has expanded into popularity all over the world. Out of respect for the brands and designers that have traveled to attend this High Tea, we observe a strict dress code of Lolita and Aristocratic fashion coordinates only. If you are attending with a parent or partner who is not part of the fashion, they may wear formal elegant attire. Brand attire is encouraged but not required for this event.

The 2020 Olympics will be hosted in Japan this year under the theme ‘Rebirth and Requiem’. The tea theme this year is ‘Goth and Gold’. We encourage you to get creative with either of these themes when planning your coordinate for the Aurelian Accolade Tea, but following the theme is not required. Please contact maya.puskaric@pittjcs.org with any questions about the Aurelian Accolade Tea.

Ticket sales are now live! https://form.jotform.com/200348580556154
