ALA FASHION SHOW
DAY 2, FRIDAY JANUARY 10th at PM
Featured DesignersDARLING ARMY
Darling Army is dedicated to making easy, cosplay alternatives for the cute enthusiast. Creator, owner, and one-woman-army Amanda not only designs every piece, but sews and constructs them, too. Well known as the original cosplay pinafore and kimono dress designer, the Darling Army has recently branched into children’s-wear in the side business Geeks In Training with her mother, Laurie. Today’s show features handpicked designs that are ready for the streets and the masquerade stage alike. Girls don’t need to wear pants to cosplay their favorite shounen characters nor do they need to squish them- selves into a tight bodysuit to be their favorite super heroine. The Darling Army wants you! Join the fight for cuteness today!
With a background in graphic design, the creator of Toshikigirl wanted to share her love for clean graphics and cheeky humor. From the beginning, her main source of inspiration was from Japanese Pop culture and fashion. What would happen if you put it all together? Toshikigirl! The goal of this brand is to create minimalistic apparel that is relatable, funny, and cute. It’s important to love what you wear AND look cute!
Starting off as a starving artist, living minimally to make ends meet, the creator earned her bachelors in Graphic Design, which further fueled her research, blood, sweat, and tears towards cute designs for the public.

Modern technological luxury, effortless elegance, and intentional utility are three fundamental principles the brand is committed to portraying. Ethically made in the United States, all pieces are engineered and cut specifically to suit our wearer’s individual physical intricacies.
