Fumiko Kawamura is the head designer for Chantilly, a rising force in lolita fashion. She established Chantilly in 2007, with it’s guiding concept being “All girls love cute/kawaii things” but also that girls admire style that is more mature and “madam-like.” Chantilly is a dream come true brand for people who can not be satisfied with simple cuteness, but also want a hint of elegance. Fumiko has made a sincere effort to support cultural exchange, working with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to spread Japanese pop culture internationally.
