"We’re choosing to dress like this. You have to have a secure, confidant, and most of all fierce attitude dress in Lolita,” Fatima Kato (in photo) says.

We’re pleasing ourselves not the world. It makes me feel free. Showing myself in a different way,” says Daniella Michel (in photo).

The fashion of Lolita dates back to the 1970s when Japanese clothing brands like Pink House and Milk and Pretty began selling clothing in the style. The style is a subculture of fashion given rise from the popularity of Anime and, by the early 1990s, Japanese girl band Princess, Princess aka Puri-Pun.
