Designers like Anna Sui and Betsey Johnson have presented looks in this vein on their runways over the years. The roots of the movement came from Japan's Harajuku district. In New York, there are large meetup groups that gather so they can dress up and have tea parties.
The silhouette should be pouffy skirt or flared. A crinoline is key. Lace, ribbons, prints. Accessories are very important. A handbag in the shape of a heart, fruit, stuffed animal or butterfly works. For shoes, Mary Janes and Victorian heels are desirable.
This fashion movement is not for those who take themselves too seriously. It's fun, it's girly and invites you to live out childhood princess fantasies.
