by Andrew Osmond
On Friday August 31, London's Victoria and Albert Museum near South Kensington (directions) will host Loli-POp!, "an evening of Lolita fashion" to tie in with the museum's current exhibition on Japan's "Lolita" style (called "Kitty and the Bulldog: Lolita Fashion and the Influence of Britain").
The evening will run from 6.30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Guests are invited to "Be styled in pink, with frills and wigs, plus doll-like make-up with an edge." The events during the evening will be designated on a first come, first served basis, unless stated otherwise. These events include DJ sets, talks, a wig bar, a nail bar, and an eye and lips bar. There will also be a screening of the live-action film Kamikaze Girls, and a film about British Lolita Culture by the cameraman Francesco Calvano.
