Kumiko Uehara, Chief Fashion Designer of Baby, The Stars Shine Bright will be a Guest of Honor at Innocente Seraphim 2009, the nation's first J-fashion and BJD convention held August 8-9, 2009 at the Westin Bellevue, in Bellevue Washington.

Miss Kumiko Uehara dreamed of becoming a fashion designer as a child. When she was a teen-ager, she discovered the world of lolita fashion. In 1999 she graduated from Bunka Women's University and started her own clothing brand. In 2000, Miss Uehara was recruited by BABY as a designer of dresses, purses and umbrellas. Her masterpiece dresses include the "Elizabeth", the "Cinderella" and the "Yukinonamidahime". In 2009, she was recognized and invited as the designer of BABY to the Japan Pop Cultural Festival. Attendees of InnoSera will have an opportunity to meet Miss Uehara in person, attend a fashion show featuring Baby, The Stars Shine Bright fashions, and buy BABY fashions and accessories at InnoSera plus enjoy panels, workshops, an exhibitor's hall, anime showings, and dances.

Baby, The Stars Shine Bright is the lolita fashion house created in 1988 by Akinori Isobe and his wife, Fumiyo. Featured in the film, Kamikaze Girls, Baby, The Stars Shine Bright specializes in Sweet Lolita and has another fashion line called Alice and the Pirates. Baby, The Stars Shine Bright opened their first international retail store outside of Japan in Paris, France and is planning to open their first American retail store in San Francisco, California on August 14, 2009.

Lolita Fashion is a fashion subculture originating in Japan. It is influenced by Victorian children's clothing as well as elements from goth-culture and the Rococo period. Lolita fashion has evolved into several different sub styles and has a devoted following of fashionistas around the world. The Lolita look consists primarily of a knee length skirt or dress, blouse, petticoat, knee high socks or stockings and rocking horse or high heel/platform shoes with specific accessories including parasols, bonnets or mini-top hats, and lace gloves.

Innocente Seraphim 2009 will be held August 8 and 9 at the Westin Bellevue in Bellevue Washington.

Innocente Seraphim is a two-day event celebrating modern Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls and Japanese Street Fashion such as Gothic and Sweet Lolita, FRUiTs, and Visual Kei that is created and produced by Valkyries, LLC. An annual event, it will be held this year at the Westin Bellevue in Bellevue Washington on August 8-9, 2009. The event serves as a gathering place for the general public, designers and industry artisans to celebrate, explore, foster trade and communicate about J-fashion and ABJD's.
