It’s that time of the week again and this time we have Welsh lolita expert Rachel Claire! From rural Wales, Rachel is a talented fine art painter, and has a real passion for Japanese street fashion. A lot of her art is influenced by fantasy and rococo culture, and can be viewed here. Her creativity she shows in her art also shows in her brilliant fashion coordinations. Though mainly a sweet lolita, she is also seen in styles such as fairy-kei, and is an inspiration to many UK fashionistas. Here are some of my favourite photos from her blog:

At HYPER JAPAN 2011 Rachel modelled in the ‘Cute and Colourful’ fashion show decked in cute accessories from head to toe. She looked lovely in her outfit featuring Angelic Pretty’s ‘Candy Fairy’, and appeared with adorable lolita Kairi, who was wearing Angelic Pretty’s ‘Miracle Candy’. The two obviously impressed the public with their pretty coordinations and were interviewed for the HYPER JAPAN youtube and Mo-am magazine’s youtube.
