GRAMARYE FASHION WALK
Submit your J-fashion 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 Gramarye: Afterlife. 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 types of J-fashion are welcomed and encouraged. We look forward to seeing how you wear your favorite J-fashions!
The Fashion Walk will be streamed as a panel on Saturday, November 5th 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 per category to the Coord Contest, and are only eligible to win one prize pack. This means you have a maximum of three contest entries, but can only win once!
We invite you to explore the concept of the afterlife, as well as how the living choose to honor those who have passed. This can mean delving into your personal religious or spiritual beliefs or drawing from your own cultural practices. Mourning themes, religious iconography, and macabre imagery are all appropriate sources of inspiration.
You are not required to match the theme, but it is encouraged!
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 include a selection of items and discount codes from our participating brands. The deadline for submission is October 30th, 11:59 PM PDT. Winners will be chosen via popular vote. A link to the voting form will be provided to attendees after the fashion walk airs on Saturday, November 5th.
To submit multiple coords, please submit a new form for each submission.
By submitting your media via the entry form, you acknowledge and understand that you are granting Bay Area Kei a limited license to edit images and repost to the Bay Area Kei social media channels, including (though not limited to) Facebook and Instagram.
Your contest entry can be submitted for a chance to win in one of the three theme categories:
Elysium - Sweet lolita, classic lolita, coordinates with a heavenly air
Tartarus - Gothic lolita, EGA, dark or macabre coordinates
Arcadia - All other J-Fashion, coordinates that reflect duality or celebrate the in-between
