ATELIER PIERROT is one of the leading brands of the immediately recognizable Gothic Lolita fashion style from Japan. ATELIER PIERROT dresses and accessories are inspired by gothic architecture and the fashion worn by aristocrats during Europe’s late Baroque “Rococo” movement, resulting in striking garments adorned with ornate patterns, frills, and laces. With a main store located in Japan’s Harajuku district - a legendary fashion destination - and an additional branch found in Shinsaibashi, Osaka, ATELIER PIERROT strives to design and produce dresses that turn heads today as they did in the 18th century.
Yuko Ashizawa is the lead designer and CEO of fashion brand ATELIER PIERROT. In addition to her well-known design work, she manages select shops which carry ATELIER PIERROT and other Gothic Lolita brands - both domestic to Japan and international. This is Ashizawa-san’s second appearance at Naka-Kon!
