TokyoFashionNews did a recent tour of the new La Foret boutique - from the looks of it most of the clothing there would fall into the Sweet or Classic substyles - I didn't see much in the way of Gothic Lolita but it could probably be done.
This is very popular among girls in Japan who adore the Lolita look but don't have the money or time to commit to it. I imagine this would also be very popular for tourists who are fascinated by the various Harajuku styles and would love the chance to try it on for a day.
What do you think? Do you suppose this might draw more people into the fashion or at least give them an appreciation for what goes into it?
