Inc (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo), a company engaged in organize event in South East Asia and handling dispatch of Japanese culture, produce world’s first Muslim Lolita event called “Kawaii Hijabi Collection”.
In 2016, East Asia first Modest Fashion Show held on HALAL EXPO JAPAN, where Halal food and inbound businesses come together in one roof, became a hot topic. Basic of Muslimah (Muslim women) fashion is cover all body, and in South East Asia where Muslimah fashion is growing and booming, it gets various of fashion trends coming out.
Coo. Inc, a company who established its foreign corporation on 2014 that handling Japanese pop culture in Indonesia, is focusing on Lolita fashion which is popular in overseas. Lolita fashion that is started in Japan, made its way to Europe, America, and South America, then now it gains high-popularity in China. Lolita fashion and Muslim fashion has similarity, that is refrain from excessive exposure of the skin. There, it is expected to have Lolita market needs locally so we organize this event. By combination of Lolita and Hijabi, we firmly believe to the development of a new market.
Kawaii Hijabi Collection as a new perspective where Muslim meets Lolita, will be dispatched from fashion city, Tokyo, to the world. Muslim x Lolita fashion content is the world’s first attempt. Modest fashion show held last year, gave impact to the world and got its video reached 5.100.000 views. Then on this year event, with collaboration with Lolita fashion and participation from Cool Japan fans, we believe it will surpass last year’s achievement. Moreover, this year Halal Expo Japan is expected to attract 10,000 visitors in 3 days, surpass last year’s that attracted about 7,000 visitors in 2 days.
Kawaii Hijabi Collection will have catwalk show (only in Nov 21), Lolita experience where visitors could wear Lolita costume and get photoshoot, and Lolita world’s unique culture “tea party” session.
