Miho Satoh, Masumi Kanoh from Lolita brand featured in Kamikaze Girls film
New York Anime Festival 2008 has announced that two Lolita fashion designers from the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright brand — Miho Satoh and Masumi Kanoh — will be attending the September 26-28 event at New York City's Jacob Javitz Center. In addition to presenting a panel about their brand and the Rococo/Victorian-inspired Lolita fashion lifestyle, the two will join a tea party in their label's honor. The Baby, the Stars Shine Bright company runs a chain of boutique stores in Japan, but it was arguably popularized outside Japan more by the film Kamikaze Girls (Shimotsuma Monogatari). In this film distributed by Viz Media, Kyoko Fukada plays a country girl whose only outlet is her obsession in clothes from the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright stores in Tokyo.
