Hi my name is…
Lea, I am the head of Magazine Papillon!
Our team consists of a few gals! Lala (Design Head), Shin (Editor, web), Cattea (Editor, printing), Kelsey (Head of models) and Emi (Blog). Together with our models and a few other cufte gals we make Papillon happen!
What does the community mean to you?
So much! I have been in the community for about 9 years now and have made most of my friends through it! I love gyaru and they all inspire me in so many ways.
Tell us about Papillon!
Papillon started when our previous head put out the idea on Instagram and a few of us jumped right in! Lala made a mock-up cover and since then there was no going back! Papillon is inspired by Koakuma Ageha, we all love the sparkle and gorgeous editing they used to have! Our name “Papillon” is also derived from Ageha, both mean butterfly and perfectly incorporate the metamorphosis girls go through to become gyaru!
Any last words?
We have received incredible support since day one, and hope we can continue to inspire while giving out helpful content to our readers! Outside of the mag we also give out content on our homepage, and hope to be able to make more and even better content in the future!
