Upcoming JFashion Convention: Kei-Con!

Kei-Con is a Japanese Street Fashion convention located in Toronto Canada. This year the convention will be held from September 29th – October 1st, 2023.

This year the guest list includes Haenuli x Iris Garden, Dollfille x Dollybox.Online, Belladonna and Lolibrary! I’ll be attending as one of the representatives for lolibrary!

Lolibrary will be hosting two panels, one will be about lolibrary, covering history, some recent changes / updates + the formal announcement of a new project several years in the making we are really excited to release.

The second panel will be about identifying items using lolibrary & additional resources.

Belladonna will be showing in the fashion show as well as vending in the marketplace. There will also be a panel hosted by designer Michelle and manager Sam talking about the history of the brand. If you are attending the convention and want to order items from Belladonna, you will be able to order from their online shop starting today using the hotel address (see below) as the delivery address for at convention pickup.

This ‘free shipping if you pick up at the event’ offer is good for any ready made item. MTO items are not included just because the designers can’t guarantee that they would have enough time to make MTO items before the event since they have some things to prepare for the fashion show still.

  1. I’ll be attending, and will be a vendor assistant for Dream Cathedral as well. I’m excited to hear there is a new Lolibrary announcement. I’ve been a patron of Lolibrary for several years and a reader of this blog for many more.
