We posted a while ago both here and on the EGL LiveJournal community about selling Angelic Pretty, and we know some of you are waiting for news. Here's the deal.
Tuesday, July 14, 2009
As you know, early last month we visited Japan and met with three clothing brands. Angelic Pretty was one of the three, and we were (and still are) very happy that they eventually emailed us and accepted our offer to sell their clothes here - though it wasn't until we had returned to the United States. We placed our first order soon after. AP has since been understandably busy with planning the Japan Expo fashion show, so we waited. We were excited to see their stuff (in pics and videos) at the show there, and to see Maki and Asuka staffing their booth and attending the tea party after the Expo.
The only update we can give you since then is that we are still waiting, and our order is still pending. We've contacted them again and haven't gotten an update ourselves. All we can do is keep waiting.
We are talking to other brands at this point. Having several Lolita brands will make it easier and quicker to maintain a good stock of Lolita merchandise.
So we're unfortunately in a wait and see mode with AP right now, but moving forward on other fronts. We do apologize for the delay! It will all be worth it in the end, one way or another.
(Yeah, this is one of those annoying "we have no news!" posts, but in this case we thought you'd want to know what was going on... or not going on.)
