Rosé Forêt Presents: Winter in the Woodlands
You are cordially invited to Winter in the Woodlands! Rosé Forêt’s Colorado-based event will be held—wait for it!—online this year. This 3-day bonanza of panels will be co-hosted by Bay Area Kei and Pretty Princess Club, and feature long time community members who are all passionate about Japanese street fashion and ready to share their knowledge.
So, what can you expect? Day one kicks off at 17:00 ET with international activist collective Kawaii Riot on community, creativity and advocacy. Then, you can get ready in your Visual Kei co-ord with Melissa Alexander, and learn about the history of the style. From 23:00, we get a gyaru double whammy with Juupitan teaching us the basics of gyaru style in Gyaru 101, and an in-depth look at parapara, the iconic gyaru dance style.
On day two, Purestmaiden and Avina-kei will give us a lesson on layering. You can also get a quick history lesson on Lolita, just tune in to “It’s Always High Tea Time: 10 Year Lolita Challenge”. Hosts Jaime and Kim will take us through the last 10 years of Lolita fashion. At 08:45 there will be a fashion walk. The fashion show at any event is the highlight of the occasion. Attendees do the most for the walk, so don’t forget to show your support!
Winter in the Woodlands will be rounded off with Jason R. Merrill of Blackbird Finery showing us how to stay cute on budget! His Dapper on a Dime panel is the last panel of the event and will be followed by the closing ceremony during which contest winners and future events will be announced.
Rosé Forêt will also be hosting an online marketplace. All vendors are community businesses who are known for creating discounts and collections especially for events like these. You do not want to miss out! Finally, what is a community event without meeting someone new? Join a virtual tea party and chat with some fashion friends.
Full details about panels, vendors and how to view the event are on Rosé Forêt and Bay Area Kei’s websites. Hope to see you there!
Do you miss in person events, or is it just as fun to join in at home?
