Baby The Stars Shine Bright Solo Show Review
Firstly, the runway show gave audiences a glimpse on an elegant and doll-like world. From the highly-designed prints to the construction of the garment, the brand wanted to keep their signature “Lolita” fashion style. Then, the brand used their mascot, “Usakumya-chan” as the main inspiration of this collection. One of the main motifs of this collection is a heart, a core element of the logo. For example, in these two photos, the influences of Alice in Wonderland and Lolita are apparent by the bow headpieces, bubble pigtails, and babydoll silhouette. Another example to add is that the characters that the models are portraying are from Alice in Wonderland. The left image is Alice herself with the light blue and white accents everywhere on the garment. The right image is a depiction of the Tweedle Boys from the Lewis Carroll classic.

The Baby, The Stars Shine Bright brand is also experimenting with more color schemes in this collection. Usually, the brand focuses on pastels that appeals to Japanese audiences. But, the company has decided to use more warm tone colors such as red to encompass the New York Fashion Week 24/25 theme of Autumn and Winter. On the left image below, it is a warm mint color instead of a cool one to highlight the model but the reoccurring motifs of hearts and bows on her garment as well. On the right image below, a model is wearing a Christmas inspired garment while the other is representing the spring. Overall, the brand is making their signature on the fashion world with their intricate and unique perspective on Alice in Wonderland for the 24/25 season.
