Cuteness, escapism, and lace monsters: my first Lolita tea party

Born on the streets of Toyko, Lolita fashion has traveled beyond Japan and evolved into many substyles. Today, there’s sweet Lolita, classic Lolita, and goth Lolita. The key is to have a fully coordinated look. Fusion takes to the streets of Little Tokyo in Los Angeles to discover the origins of the style and how it spread across the world. Our host Jonas Bell Pasht gets dolled up for the annual Lolita tea party with the help of a few experts who teach him a thing or two about fashion, extravagance, and escapism.

This is an episode of Weird Threads, a Fusion original web series.
