"Styles which start life on the street corner have a way of ending up on the backs of top models on the world’s most prestigious fashion catwalks. This shouldn’t surprise us because the authenticity which streetstyle is deemed to represent is a precious commodity."Everyone wants a piece of it."

The GothLoli style has its roots in the 70's but consolidated itself in the 90's as a strong subculture that nowadays is impacting the West as well as its homeland, the East. It's influenced by Victorian and Edwardian children's clothing, mixed with Rococco and 80's Gothic, giving the style a unique and recognizable pattern of dressing up. The Gothic Lolita, being a subgenre of the Lolita Style uses darker clothes and make up, but still in a delicate way, and that's what differences it with Western Gothic Styles. It never loses purity and inocense, or at least, it is always playing with these concepts.The style has been portraited in many Mangas and Animes in Japan and there are many Online Stores where you can order your own outfit and garments. You can visit: http://www.lacarmina.com/ where you'll find an online shop, galleries and information about the style.

Meanwhile two big plasma TV's transmitted J-POP Bands and Anime Graphics. Don't miss the Dolly Anniversary on August the 9th, starting at 6pm and going on through the night, at the legendary Gothic nightclub REQUIEM (Av. de Mayo 948).
