Submit your Valentine's Day coordinates to participate in our Fashion Walk! All entries will be compiled into a video that will be streamed publicly on Twitch as a panel during Garnet Gateau. You can also enter your coordinate in our Coord Contest to win prizes from some of our participating brands, but entry in the Coord Contest is optional and not required in order to participate in the Fashion Walk video. All J-fashions are welcomed and encouraged to participate. We look forward to seeing how you wear your favorite J-fashions!
The Fashion Walk will be streamed as a panel on Saturday, February 6th on the Bay Area Kei Twitch channel.
Please keep in mind that, while you may enter the Fashion Walk with as many coordinate submissions as you like, you may only submit ONE coordinate to the Coord Contest overall.
Deadline for voting is February 7th, and we will announce winners at the Closing Ceremony.
You can opt-in to submitting an outfit to the contest by attaching a corresponding photo of your coordinate entry along with your video submission. Prizes vary from a selection of items or discount codes from our participating brands. The deadline for submission is Monday, February 1st, 2021, 11:59 PM PST.
Your coord entry can be submitted for a chance to win in one of the three theme categories - Sugar, Spice or Everything Nice
🍰 Sugar - Sweet/Classic lolita
🌶️ Spice - Gothic/Ero lolita
✨ Everything Nice - All other J-fashion
