Sweet for Art, Sweet for Fashion
Sweet Streets II is the brainchild of the sensational Hi Hi Caro, hosted at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California. It is a collective group of different artists with their own interpretation of what is Japanese street fashion and style. It is a colorful show and I am glad I could make it. I missed last year’s show and I was determined not to miss out on this one.
I was lucky enough to be invited an hour early into the show before they let people in. It’s a rare chance to view art at opening night inside Nucleus minus the huge amount of people inside; minutes after the show officially opened, it got crowded very fast.
6%Dokidoki presented a fashion show that involved a group of kawaii girls dancing to a very catchy tune. I caught most of the dance on video, but it gets cut off at the end since one of the models, San Smith, pulled me up to dance with them. It was awesome! Watch the video:
I walked away from the 6%Dokidoki pop up store with a little bag ful of new accessories (cost more than the usual bagful of shopping, let me tell you… but totally worth it! SO CUTE!).
Check out our photos below! Plus a video of a quick tour of the first floor of the gallery. All the artwork is totally worth checking out.
Can’t wait for next year’s show… and I am sure it will be even bigger! Congratulations to Hi Hi Caro, the artists, Nucleus and everyone involved in putting it together. It was a Harajuku inspired art paradise!
