In case you haven’t heard the news, recently, Onefreekiss announced it’s closure after years of serving the Filipino Gothic and Lolita scene with it’s one-of-a-kind, elegant and breath-taking designs.
For those who didn’t have a chance to know, Onefreekiss is local Gothic and Lolita clothing brand owned by Catherine de Jesus. It’s the first ever Gothic and Lolita shop that actually produces it’s own designs and/or products that opened years ago, when Gothic and Lolita and other Japanese street fashion weren’t as popular in the country as it is today.
In those times, there are only a handful of stores where you could buy these type of clothes locally. I usually order mine online, not until Mommy Cris started selling her stuff (and there was a time, pre-orders too) at Rock n Doll, her online shop. Now, there has been too many shops that appear here and there where you could buy and/or have these things made. But remember to be very careful when buying online because there is always that possibility of getting scammed.
Despite this news, however, Cat decided to moved on to a new line catering to mostly cosplayers in her new shop called Layers HQ. Since I’m not really a cosplayer, I’ll probably just end up browsing around the shop more than purchasing anything from it like I used to. Or if chances permit, I might end up having something made out of the shop, who knows.
