Last year, we covered the madness as Harajuku fashion brand 6%DOKIDOKI took their “Kawaii Anarchy” tour to Europe and America. Last month, everyone’s favorite “Sensational Lovely Shop” hit the road once again. This time, Sebastian, Yuka, Vani, and the rest of the 6% posse made their way up the west coast of the U.S. and into Canada – stopping first in Los Angeles, then flying up to Vancouver, and finally down to Seattle.
At each stop, brand founder and Harajuku fixture Sebastian Masuda gave a talk about Harajuku and Kawaii culture. Attendees enjoyed a 6%DOKIDOKI fashion show, photo and autograph sessions, and were given the chance to purchase goods at a special pop-up shop.
The L.A. 6%DOKIDOKI event – organized by our friends at Sweet Streets – included a flea market with lots of cute handmade goods. In Vancouver, Sebastian gave his talk to fashion majors at the Art Institute of Vancouver, who took notes on the history of Harajuku and Kawaii culture. In Seattle, 6%DOKIDOKI was a special guest at Sakura-Con. Everywhere they went, the tour tried to bring a little bit of Harajuku to the world!
During the tour, 6%DOKIDOKI announced that their fashion and accessories are now available internationally through the Marui One online store.
It would be impossible for us to show you everything that happened on the latest tour, but – with the help of lots of different photographers – we wanted to show you a small sampling of the fun. Check out the tour pictures below, and don’t forget to come out and meet the entire 6%DOKIDOKI crew the next time they stop in your town!
