Inspired by baroque and Grimms’ Fairy Tales, her designs are often connected with nature, usually with a darker color palette, at times mystical in nature. Haenuli is an inclusive brand in terms of sizes as lolitas come in various shapes and sizes. Nunu is going to unveil several new designs in person at her fashion show, including Winnie-the-Pooh, and some other upcoming projects that she's showing in the future.

Regional Showcase Designers

Kittykaya Kawaii Designs

Kittykaya’s artist Christina has been a lolita fashion enthusiast for 13 years. Kittykaya was created around kawaii culture, lolita fashion, and nostalgic pop culture from the artist’s childhood in the U.S. Kittykaya does a bit of everything, including illustrating, designing and sewing original lolita print dresses, and making jewelry. From Christina’s experience, lolita can be quite uncomfortable, which is why she strives to bridge the gap between comfy and cute! Kittykaya’s dresses are made to order from the initial print sketch to the final piece, with no extra cost for inclusive sizing. Also, they have giant pockets big enough for a Nintendo Switch!

Empire Noir

Empire Noir is an Aristocratic Gothic and Lolita Brand inspired by the regality of the macabre. This vampiric tale is told through a dynasty of red expressions, as well as west African culture and Baroque periods of style.

Midnight Springs

Midnight Springs is a yamikawaii brand founded by a chronically ill crafter and designer. Midnight Springs strives to accent all things creepy with cute, and carries multiple menhera-themed designs in hopes that cute accessories can help spur conversations that lead to awareness and acceptance.

The Angelic Forest

The Angelic Forest is a Pacific Northwest lolita fashion brand that aims to bring quality and affordable clothing to people of all sizes. They work in sweet and gothic lolita substyles and make items from dresses and skirts to matching jewelry and handbags.

Belladonna

Belladonna began in 2013 when long time best friends Michelle and Rachel decided to embark on a wild journey to create Jfashion clothing and accessories for the american market. Since then Belladonna has had the pleasure of showing collections in fashion shows all across the United States and even a few international shows.
