Meet and mingle with fellow "gothic and lolitas" of the growing fashion movement and culture. From the Classic lolita to the ever-popular Gothic lolita style and the eye-catching Sweet lolita, all Lolitas are welcome! If you are wanting to try the style out come to one of our meets ups and meet some other newbies and the local veterans. The Lolita style began in the 1970's with brands such as Milk and Pink House making outfits that resembled Canada's Anne of Green Gables (which is widely loved in Japan) and, to a lesser extent, Little House on the Prairie. Angelic Pretty opened in 1979, Baby, The Stars Shine Bright opened in 1988, and Moi-meme-Moitie opened in 1999. We have recently celebrated the opening of the first brand store opening on US soil and it's here in San Francisco.
