Leprechaun Lolita


Leprechaun Lolita

Leprechaun Lolita – a strange merge of Irish folk law and Japanese Lolita fashion in 40 shades of green.

This body of work takes inspiration from Lolita, the Japanese cultural street movement, inspired primarily by the clothing and general aesthetics of the Rococo and Victorian periods. This fashion movement started in Japan in the 1980s and has evolved greatly since. Nowadays Lolita fashion has grown to be relatively popular all over the world. There are many sub-cultures to Lolita, such as Gothic Lolita (leaning towards the dark side) or Sweet Lolita (incorporating the colour pink). Harriet adds Irish flavor to this trend in her multi-media representations to create a new Irish sub-culture to the movement, “Leprechaun Lolita” brings these themes into an Irish context by including stories and characters from Irish fairy tales.

The opening night was July 10th 2010 the show ran for two weeks until July 24th.
