Japanese culture has spread throughout most of the world in the form of food, anime, video games, and so much more. But one region that has not yet taken in as much of what Japan has to offer as the rest of the world is the Middle East and other Muslim countries.
Until now. In an awesome Mass Avant-Garde fashion mash-up that nobody could’ve foreseen, Muslim fans of the Japanese lolita fashion trend have begun pairing these sweet-as-candy outfits with their hijabs, creating a unique new style that Japanese lolita fans are falling in love with.
Lolita fashion is a subculture in Japan and is thought to have been partly created to react against the growing exposure of the body and skin in modern society. So girls decided to minimize exposing their skin and the youngsters wear Victorian-era dress to refer to modesty.
It’s important to note that the photos of the Muslim women showing off their Lolita fashion skills on Twitter don’t originate from the Middle East; they’re actually photos of Muslim women in England and California. But you’ve got to start somewhere, so maybe the trends they set will pick up momentum in other Muslim regions around the world.
