Fashion Shows

Pop! Show

Signia by Hilton San Jose, Regency Ballroom 1
Saturday, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

The Pop! Fashion Show includes styles such as fairy kei, himekaji, jirai kei, yamikawaii, and wafuku. Whether it’s bright pops of color with a pile of accessories or a modern twist on traditional Japanese garb, these styles are united by the pursuit of individual creativity and expression through clothing.

Elegant Show

Signia by Hilton San Jose, Regency Ballroom 1
Sunday, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

The Elegant Fashion Show includes styles such as lolita fashion, ouji, otome kei, and mori kei. Taking inspiration from historical fashion of all time periods, these styles incorporate intricate garment details, luxurious textiles, and a maximalist design aesthetic to create clothing with a cultivated air of decadence.
