ENCHANTED LONDON 2014.

As a part of my trip to London I participated in Japanese fashion lolita style event Enchanted organized by Street Fashion Europe.

There are so many informations, pictures and reports available so it doesn’t make sense to put it all here but you can follow Street Fashion Europe Facebook page for everything listed in one place :)

OFFICIAL FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE

So let’s start with few basic informations for those of you who haven’t heard of it before. It was a two day event, main things happening on Saturday 5. April and tea party with special guests on 6. April.

I participated only on Saturday 5. April (next time I’ll be smart and reserve any ticket possible!).

Here is the program for that day, take special attention to the guests of honor! <3 …and list of stalls and donators on the back:

Notice I’m on the back in the donators list as well! :D I made three round headdresses and a sailor collar especially for this event but in the rush forgot to take decent pictures of them >.< If you got my sailor collar or headdresses with bird nests or teapot as a raffle prize please take pictures, I’m giving out discounts for it! :D I have only this Instagram picture:

My prizes also included a fluffy squid headband, zebra spiked headband, strawberry eyepatch with fluffy red polka dot bow and punk lolita sailor collar.

OUTFIT

As a part of my Spring collection 2014. I made a jumper skirt and coat for myself, as well as matching choker, headdress and birdcage bag.

For the shoes I decided on the Startas sneakers that I got as a part of Borovo d.d. sponsorship for my Spring collection. It seemed like a challenge to fit them into this kind of outfit and I love challenges. On the more important part, I felt it is important to promote Croatian design since this factory exists for a long time, Startas was worn way back in Yugoslavia and I really admire this factory and it’s battle on the market today. So girls, please support them!

These shoes have a bird pattern that fits my outfit, cute bows and they are so comfortable!

ScreenShot

Before leaving the house we did a little photoshoot in Cathy’s garden (see more of it on this link):

For this event I decided to wear only my designs (on the pictures: choker, headdress, jumper skirt, coat, bag) and things I got in Croatia, as a form of promotion and as well as encouraging local girls that this fashion can be worn locally. (only thing that isn’t from Croatia is a silver bow ring I got in London from Cathy)

A lot of it is upcycled. Coat fabric is a redesigned curtain and I found the birdcage on my attic. Bird nests and eyelashes were bought in a local cheap shop Offertisima, socks with lace are from Chinese shop. Birdcage necklace is from shop Accessorize. Jumper skirt cotton blend fabric with feathers is from fabric shop Pamigo. Shoes are, as mentioned Startas brand.

Unicorn horn was a huge success at the event and deserves a special paragraph.  It is a gift from a very talented friend Ada Acid. She did all the horns for my Spring collection (click to see them). If you need horns I highly recommend her! She does all sorts of other interesting stuff as well, jewelry, cosplay, illustration.

TRAVEL

Great part of that day. Horn was too tall for subway, I felt really funny walking like that around – but no one cared! Great thing about London. Some guy said it was brilliant and some kids wanted to take a picture with me but that’s it. Next stop, wearing my horn on Croatian streets, that will be something :D

COMPANIONSHIP
Tetsu and me ^o^

Tetsu and me ^o^

Tetsu and I decided to go together to event, to keep each other company <3 Few days before it turns out she had an extra ticket so the opportunity presented itself – for Alen to attend the event too! He attends all Croatian meet ups and really supports me in this interest of mine, taking photos, knowing all the brands and prints, suggesting what I should buy xD He has seen Vienna Innocent World event only on photos so I was so happy that he could experience this too with me! It’s not the same without him.

So the gang got together at Liverpool station and Lisa joined us too. Unicorn, punk and two gorgeous fluffy lolitas with bonnets, what a site!

On the reception desk we got our VIP tote bags with Enchanted print on, promotion leaflets, candy’s, some cool tea that opens up like a flower and a raffle ticket. Notice my MyauMania leaflet on the left :D I’ve sent 150 of them :)

treasure 0004

I love postcards with artwork I got! Have to frame them all ^_^ Had some copies, gave them to my friends. The one on the far left is a sticker, and second one on the left is Minori’s artwork. Third one is from Lacebook, artwork by Oh Tralala, I admire it so much, so talented! And the last one is from Enchanted event.

treasure 0005

I had two raffle tickets since Alen had a ticket as well… but my ticket didn’t won a prize. Alen’s did on the other hand! :D Yay! I got a ring and a badge from Roxiesweetheart.co.uk. Lisa gave me the pink bat, she won it at the raffle but doesn’t wear pastel goth. I’m so lucky I guess :D And Enchanted badge was in my VIP goodie bag, love it to death.

OUTFITS

There were just so many beautiful outfits! Everyone looked amazing, I would keep looking around me and taking pictures but still didn’t have time to photograph everyone I admired. It is glorious how much creativity and effort people have put into their outfits and headpieces. Resulting in pure perfection, works of art!

I think this is one of the best things about this kind of events, they encourage people to be creative and take it to the next level. And no matter what you did with your outfit, truth is that when you see others you will still feel underdressed. And yet this makes your passion for fashion feel normal, with like minded people :)

So anyway this post is so very crowded with pictures and I still have so much to show. So I’ll put photos of 6 outfit that were my favorites at the event and for others please check my Facebook album of the event.

I feel so sad that it is over, that this post is over, want to go back. Can’t wait for another event I’ll be able to attend! Thank you Street Fashion Europe for this wonderful event!
