Recently I won a giant giveaway from Kawaii B an online community who promote independant handmade brands and they all get together to share their photos and products to the world. One of the contributors was Fuzzy Moon. Which included a plastic sparkly bracelet, robot brooch and fluffy cat ears.
Who are the ppl behind Fuzzy Moon?
A small team of two people: Joana Neto, Brand owner Jordan Terry, Co-owner and partner. For many years, Jojo dreamt of giving people fashion but in lower prices. She never had a fixed genre in mind as mainstream fashion didn't feel expressive enough. After some of her love of Japan entered the internet and researched Japanese fashion, Fairy Kei and Mahou kei sprung to mind, and she loved how diverse it can be! Diverse, unique with a hint of DIY which shows so much character.
A great advantage was Jojo studied fashion in college, nothing too in detail, just some techniques and projects. She gained confidence to experiment much more in the field with the knowledge she learned. Other than that, its purely a hobby, which they decided to take further and share with everyone who loves the fashion
How did you come up with the name?
"The sparkles of the fashion styles reminds me of the sky and how comfortable everything seemed. That's where the Fuzzy (comfortable feeling) Moon (beautiful stars and galaxies) came from. My items are inspired by dreams, self expression, and magical girls!"
All her items are in fact handmade even as far as to making mould and such. This gal is hardcore and not afraid of experimenting! Based in the UK, I met up with her at MCM and wore a few of her items on the Catwalk for the Harajuku Fashion show.
Since they are new, starting last year in December "we still are a little baby in this world. But we plan to go to as many conventions as possible."
Eyebow hair clips,
The eye colours are available in Yellow, blue (two shades), green and brown (two shades). These have so many variations possible, and I really want to explore this design later down the line =) These are actually hair clips but I used it to jazz up my shoes instead - very versatile accessories and very trendy due to the Kyari Pamyu Pamyu faze. $12
