Harajuku No. 5

I'm in the Harajuku vs. Chanel show coming up at the UForge Gallery in JP. It will be up tomorrow at JP's First Thursday through September.

With Uforge's September theme of Harajuku vs. Chanel artists were faced with the fantastic challenge of creating an image that melded a fashion district known for it's fast and unusual teen trends and a fashion label that built it's name on timelessness and elegance. I've always been a fan of Harajuku fashion, even before Gwen Stefani marched back into the pop scene clad in super cute Japanese girls, so my piece features an Elegant Sweet Lolita (one of the many styles of Harajuku inspired by the Rococo era) striking the iconic pose of Marilyn Monroe in the famous Chanel No. 5 perfume advertisement.

The opening reception is on September 10 - check out the details here.
