At our Christmas Market this year, we’re very excited to bring you Dreamy Bows’ pop-up fashion shop, which stocks everything you need to create your own unique head-to-toe J-fashion look! Dreamy Bows is a UK-based shop specialising in a range of cute Japanese street fashion styles including lolita, gyaru, Harajuku, hime kei, fairy kei and casual kawaii. Their aim is to offer J-fashion followers in Europe a wide selection of unique and hard-to-find Japanese fashion and beauty items, without the fees and shipping issues associated with buying straight from Japan.
Dreamy Bows are now the exclusive UK distributors for KOKOkim, a super cute Tokyo-based brand which has recently burst into the J-fashion scene, and LISTEN FLAVOR, a long-running edgy-kawaii Harajuku brand. Dreamy Bows are also the official UK and Europe retailer for the iconic sweet lolita brand Angelic Pretty and sweet pastel accessories and jewellery brand Chocomint.
What’s more, Dreamy Bows now stocks casual kawaii and gyaru clothing and shoes from affordable Japanese brand Dream V, and famous false eyelash brand EYEMAZING. Be sure to look out for Dreamy Bows’ own affordable ranges of accessories, wigs, handbags and deco nails!
To give you a flavour of the J-style goodies stashed in Dreamy Bows’ booth of wonders, here’s a short intro to two of their utterly delectable fashion lines…
KOKOkim was created by famous Japanese Kera model Kimura U. It introduces the new style concept of “MoeHara” by combining fashion inspiration from Akihabara and Harajuku. The result is a feminine yet quirky collection in beautiful pastel hues, with lots of adorable detailing. The first KOKOkim store only just opened up in March of this year, in the famous Shibuya 109 building in Tokyo. This new brand is already budding, and proving popular with Harajuku models, on the streets of Japan, and beyond! KOKOkim clothing, shoes, bags and accessories will not only be available to buy from the Dreamy Bows pop-up booth, but will also feature in our HYPER J-Style Collection catwalk show!
LISTEN FLAVOR is a long-running Harajuku-based brand that focuses on cute pop and rock style, and is a regular favourite in KERA magazine – in fact, if you flick through any issue of KERA from the last 10 years or so, you are almost guaranteed to see some LISTEN FLAVOR clothing featured in there! The brand prides itself on its unique mix of pop, cute and cool, and its trademark concept of “kawaii with an edge” is instantly recognisable. LISTEN FLAVOR is famous for its printed t-shirts with bold designs, which are often worn baggy and oversized with cute and punky accessories, but it also produces fabulous skirts, shorts and harem pants. This much-loved brand will also have a well-deserved place on the catwalk in our HYPER J-Style Collection!
