Chinese Indie Brand Tags
There are significantly more Chinese indie brands than there are Japanese brands, and as with any fashion it’s common to see new indie designers come and go rather frequently. This, combined with the fact that a lot of western lolita don’t read Chinese and the fact that the writing on tags is often small and/or stylized, and the fact that some brands use different names on social / sales platforms versus their tags, makes it particularly hard for many western lolita to identify which brand made an item.
