General Information

The event has two portions; a Street Style Section and a Designer Section.

  • Street Style Section: Divided into their representative street styles, this section aims to educate attendees of the different fashion groups at Anime North. These sections are organized by volunteers with models wearing items from their personal collections.

    In the past we have featured styles like Visual Kei, Kimono, Steampunk, Lolita, and Gyaru just to name a few. The Fashion Show is always looking for new styles to add and individuals who have a passion for J-fashion!

  • Designer Section: This section is for brands and designers who'd like a stage to showcase their work. Work from some of the designers will be available in the Crafters Corner, Dealers Room or Pro Plaza afterwards for attendees to purchase.

    In the past we have featured designers and brands like Victorian Maiden, Juliette et Justine, Baby the Stars Shine Bright, Gloomth, Punimelt, SA Design, Apollonie Uguu, and Pinkiebel.

The individuals who are involved in the show are con-goers just like yourself! Many of them have even stated that they started watching the fashion show and wanted to get involved! We are very proud of the diversity of style and individuals who are involved with us and are always encouraging attendees to get involved with us!
