About Us

In the winter of 2018, the idea was conceptualized for Arisu, a Lolita & J-Fashion marketplace. The goal was to provide a safe, accessible, and entertaining shopping experience to the Texas j-fashion community. We hosted the first ever Arisu market on June 15, 2019, and the second the following winter. Planning had just gotten fully underway for 2020 when Covid-19 became an issue, and the 2020 markets were postponed. After taking the year off to plan, we have re-emerged with the goal to focus our efforts towards supporting small business sellers and providing online J-fashion themed programming until we are able to host the market in person once more. We greatly anticipate the return of our physical events, but will only do so when it is safe for everyone to do so.
