Dolly-kei fashion took over Shibuya on Friday night as everyone’s favorite Dolly-kei boutique – Grimoire Tokyo – held their Second Anniversary party at Cafe x Lounge MICROCOSMOS. Amazingly dressed and coiffed dollies – girls, and guys – came out in droves to celebrate the epicenter of Tokyo’s Dolly-Kei scene. The girls and boys sampled cake, muffins, and cookies while watching Japan in the World Cup, snapping pics of other attendees, making friends, and enjoying various DJs and performers – all the while toasting Grimoire’s 2nd birthday.
The event was split into two parts: a reception party from 9pm to midnight, and a Midnight Lounge from midnight until 5am. The party featured eight DJs, table magician Masaki Yamamoto, and pole dancer Tokyo Dolores. The entry fee included all the entertainment plus dinner and drink. With all of that fun in mind, TokyoFashion.com’s Will Robb grabbed his camera and made his way to Shibuya. His incredible photos below are a testament to the influence that Grimoire has had on the fashion scene in Tokyo in their two years of existence.
When you browse the photos, look closely – you’re sure to see some people that have appeared on TokyoFashion.com before, including the fabulous Saki as well as the great Grimoire managers and staff. We would like to send out a big “Congratulations!” to Grimoire on their success, and a “Thank You” as well for allowing us to photograph their fantastic party.
So, enjoy the pictures – and please click on each photo to see the high resolution version and to read the captions on the photos.
