Last Saturday, March 10, 2012, we had a wonderful time supporting the Japan Consulate’s “Japan. Endless Discovery” event with our own Bubble Punch segment, geared towards fashion, fun, and of course, our fans!
The Grove was full to brimming with guests that day, as the crowd shuffled in to experience different aspects of Japanese culture at the all-day event, with product sample booths, cultural performances, and special appearances!
Bubble Punch was happy to invite our friend Simone Legno, creative director and co-founder of tokidoki to join in the festivities, and he graciously offered to do a meet and greet session with fans over at the tokidoki booth! Simone is a great supporter of Japan, with tokidoki having done numerous charity campaigns to help those effected by the Northern Japan Earthquake last year. We are inspired by Simone and his company, all working hard to support Japan at this event!
Bubble Punch also produced our very own fashion segment that night, to give attendees a look at what’s fun, trendy, and fashionable on the streets of Japan. We also had a special segment of the show dedicated to Sanrio and Hello Kitty! The crowd packed in to get a glimpse of the over 30 models we had prepared who were decked head to toe in Japanese street fashions! The styles we featured were: Lolita, Mori Girl, Fairy Kei, Japanese punk and visual kei, Gyaru, Wa-Lolita (with clothing designed by the awesome Doll Delight), and the latest fashions from international brand Sanrio!
One audience member was able to capture a the fashion show in its entirety on video!

We would like to thank the models so much for volunteering their time and energy for this show! We would also like to thank our friends at Tune in Tokyo for providing us with flawless and fun music for the fashion show, and also our buddies Mandie and Ollie for providing us with invaluable coordination support for this event! Thanks to our makeup artists Izzy and Jonathan and hairstylists Kaytea and Alannah for making the Sanrio models look picture perfect!
And of course, a huge thank you goes to the amazing people at Sanrio, for providing us with wardrobe for our Hello Kitty-themed portion of the show, as well as to Hello Kitty herself for popping by for an appearance! Special props go to our photographer, Eron Rauch, for fighting tooth and nail for these amazing shots, and for our great volunteers Jenna and Liz! You all rock!
