This year's independent designer Lolita fashion show has been approved, and is tentatively scheduled for 4pm on Friday. At this time we are putting out a call for designers and models who would be interested in participating!

Please note - you must be a registered attendee of ACen 2013 to participate in the show (i.e. you must have a badge) and you must be available from 1:00 pm to 6:30 pm on Friday 5/17 (which includes the scheduled 4pm - 6pm time of the panel plus allowance for setup, getting dressed, etc. Again, this is based on the tentative panel schedule and is possibly subject to change.)

We are also happy to report that the show will be in a larger room this year :thumbup:


Designers:
This is a juried show. We will be evaluating entries for quality and to ensure a unique and well-rounded final show showcasing several different styles. As such, submitting an application does not guarantee entrance into the show. We can't wait to see all of your designs!
Since this is a Lolita fashion show, we require that any designs shown be recognizably Lolita-related. Please provide us with images (or a link to images) of your work, a short description of what you make, and an idea of how many pieces you would ideally like to show.

Models:
Please provide us with your measurements (bust, waist, height, and shoe size), a headshot, and full body shot (a photograph of you wearing Lolita is okay). Also, please let us know whether or not you own a petticoat, and what color(s) of blouses and shoes you have that might be useful. Model applicants of all sizes are welcome at this time. Final selection of models to be used in the show will be done according to designers' needs/requests.


If you would like to participate, please send an email with either "designer application" or "model application" as the subject to acenindiesfashionshow at gmail.com. Please feel to ask questions via email or in this thread. Thanks!

Bumping this as we could use more models. Please feel free to apply even if you don't normally wear Lolita fashion, or are not a typical fits-into-Japanese-Lolita-brand size. (We can't guarantee we have stuff to fit all sizes, but as the various designers have different specialties, we can accommodate more of a range than a stereotypical "brand" show.)

Will definitely be applying for this! :) I got to model for Hangry & Angry last year and have done 2 other lolita fashion shows at conventions. It's always a blast <3

Twilight: I can't speak for the other designers, but I'll have some outfits that can fit up to a size 18-20ish. I suspect we might be short on plus size models so you should definitely apply.

We do indeed still need plus size models! We need a few more plus size models, 'average' size models, and very small size models. Basically, all sizes are more than welcome! We may not be able to fit all sizes, but I do know we have at least a couple designers who need people up to about a size 20 or so.

I look forward to getting your emails! <3

Is this still going to be 4-6PM? On the Final Panel Programming Schedule it looks like it's 6-8PM during the Kalafina concert?

I liked how Dante ran the AMKE fashion show, so I'd like to go to as much as I can of this one, but I already bought my Kalafina ticket.

Yes, it looks like they moved us to 6-8pm, presumably to avoid conflict with a Chantilly/Atelier Pierrot panel that was just added at 4:30pm. Hopefully this won't be a problem for our participants and audience - I spent some time last night informing all the model applicants of the change. :unsure:

The online schedule is 100% up to date, it auto updates as staff work on it. So it is correct.

I applied to model and got this e-mail back from them yesterday, so yes, the time change is correct. which kinda sucks cause I have Kalafina tickets too...

"PLEASE NOTE: ACen has just made some changes on the schedule. Our show is now scheduled for 6pm to 8pm Friday, presumably moved to avoid conflict with what looks like a Chantilly/Atelier Pierrot signing session or panel scheduled at 4:30pm-5:30pm. (It seems to be a panel or signing session, and not a fashion show, due to the length and location.)

Since that panel would cut into our prep time before the show, we are planning to ask ACen to let us start a bit later, to run from 6:30pm - 8pm (90 minutes instead of the full 2 hours - that should still be plenty of time for the runway show)."

We can't change the schedule at this point but it's fine if you just use the first 30 mins for seating and setup. :)

It's late but do you need accessories? Or should I contact individual designers? I make a wide range of accessories that I can help designers who don't do that kind of stuff out with.

Hi everyone!

I hope you will join us on Friday evening at 6pm for our fashion show!

I would like to extend a special invitation to any press pass holding photographers or videographers who would like to come and capture the show.
We would be happy to welcome you into the venue a short while before general seating begins at 5:30 to ensure you get a good view.

I hope to see you all there! <3
