Review: GIRLISM 少女主義 vol.12

GIRLISM is a Chinese publication that revolves around the Lolita Fashion World. Much like Gothic and Lolita Bible, Girlism has a series of interviews, street-snaps, tutorials and, of course, freebies, for everyone who loves this fashion.

Issue 12 came out this last November and featured LiYi Tong, a famous singer from the SNH48 Chinese group, on its cover. The news of her graduation from the group was celebrated with a full photoshoot of her in Lolita!


Now, regarding the rest of the magazine, I’ll list here it’s main contents:

  • 022 ~ 023 Coronation in The Woods with Midori Fukasawa, featuring a full photoshoot with the model
  • 028 ~ 029 Interview with Dian, who is publishing a book about Tokyo and Lolita Fashion
  • 030 ~ 035 2019’s latest releases, featuring both Chinese and Japanese brands
