As awesome as it would have been, I think it would be really difficult to get Metamorphose, just because they've never come to America before.

Putumayo has done tea parties, I think they're having the tea party/fashion show shindig at Matsuri next month.

Really sad about how there might not be a "traditional" fashion show, but maybe there will still be one, just not the kind we expect?

Looking forward to hearing what happens exactly!


Yeah, I'm not expecting Meta, but a girl can dream. lol

I thought they might have, but I wasn't sure. I thought BtSSB was doing the Matsuri tea. I know Misako is there.

I hope there's still some kind of fashion show or something official.

Me too! I hope they announce it soon! We're really closing in on time to get prepared.

Yeah, I don't think ACen understands that dresses from brands can cost 200-300 dollars, and whole outfits can run to 1k and up - we need time to save and shop for whoever it is that you are inviting as a guest! ;__;

Oh no, I do understand that. I just haven't had much traction in the area I'm pursuing. I don't know if a lolita designer guest will be happening this year at this point, and if it does not, I'm sorry. I'll keep working on it,though, and we'll see what happens.

Sakura Con always gets great fashion guests. I was kinda prepared to hear that AP would be there since Lynda hinted at it around the same time she announced on her Facebook page that they'd be at Kawaii Kon with Misako. She said they'll be going to one of the upcoming Canadian conventions too... don't think they've announced which one yet though. AP is really getting around to a lot of western conventions so far this year. Too bad ACen isn't one of them. :(

Personally I was kinda expecting/ hoping for Putumayo this year, but since they should be relatively easy to book with help from Harajuku Hearts, I'm guessing that they aren't who El Ken is trying for after all. At this point I don't really care which brand it is, so long as they get one. The fashion guests are one of the reasons why I look forward to ACen each year! I'd be really disappointed if it doesn't work out.

So, I saw the announcement that we're getting h.Naoto as a guest again this year, which I'm grateful for. Any news on the lolita brand guest front?

I'm still overseas right now, and it's been tough coordinating back to the States. At this time, I do not have any further information on any lolita Guests of Honor one way or another. I will follow up next week once I'm back in Chicago.

Darn. Thanks for the reply, though. Hope you're having fun where ever you are. :)

I can tell you that I'm working with Saxony, LLC to bring out a guest. If this goes through, they will set up in the Exhibit Hall with the brands that they sell online and in their San Francisco store. Unfortunately, that is the best I can say at this point, but it at least gives you an idea of what may be for sale at ACen.

So sounds like this would just be kinda like a vendor and not really a brand guest in the traditional sense (aka designers, tea party, fashion show, etc. the usual things)?
Wondering if you're talking about Rinrin, I know she's at Sakuracon and was stateside for a little while, since she was at some events in Cali. Don't know if she is/still will be after that convention.

I'm really sorry to say that we have not been able to work out a lolita guest designer for this year. As such, Saxony will not be in the vendor hall to sell their fashions, either. I'm really sorry - I know everyone really looks forward to meeting with these guests, especially when surrounded by like-minded individuals. I promise to work hard on this for 2015!

Ohhhhh. I am so sad to hear there won't be any Angelic Pretty in the dealer's room. T_T I was really looking forward to it. Thanks for trying, at least.

I've gotta be honest, this severely disappoints me. Especially since I can't go to Midwest to see BTSSB. I was really hoping there'd be some kind of lolita vendor...:\

There will be at least one lolita vendor - it won't be Angelic Pretty/Harajuku Hearts, but there will be a booth in the dealer's room with items from several lolita brands for sale. As a consumer I'm disappointed that Saxony won't be there for me to shop from, but as a designer who is participating in the aforementioned booth and the Indie Designer Showcase fashion show, I am still excited for lolita stuff at ACen :)/>
