Anime Expo Announces Shibuya Rocks Fashion Show at Anime Expo 2013

LOS ANGELES, CA, May 12th, 2013 – Anime Expo, North America's largest anime and Japanese pop culture convention, announces its second annual fashion show! This year, we're presenting the best of the “Gal” look as SHIBUYA ROCKS! Six fantastic brands will grace the stage at our global fashion event for 2013: “cool and casual” tomboy outfits from LIZ LISA doll, “dolly and sweet” designs from TRALALA, a trendy fusion of “retro and girlish” from LIZ LISA, “elegant casual and trend mix” from GOLDS infinity, “casual, romantic, and sexy” ensembles from GLAVIL by tutuHA, and “sexy and shiny” looks from MA*RS.

These amazing, influential Japanese labels will be the centerpiece for a first-of-its-kind US event spotlighting the latest in leading designs from Tokyo's iconic Shibuya district, which is home to the world-famous 109 department store and the hub for the Gal fashion movement. The many different sleek, sexy, gorgeous, and charming designs that grace the covers of Japan's leading fashion magazines are hitting the runway at Anime Expo this July. In addition, every single one of these brands will be officially available to purchase in the Exhibit Hall. Anime Expo is proud to bring these six brands together for their first ever fashion show and pop-up shop event outside of Japan. This will be the first time in history for such an event, and we invite everyone to join the Shibuya style Gal movement!
