Kimura U was in Portland, Oregon yesterday for “Japan Night,” an event hosted by the The Japanese Student Society. She did a meet and greet and stayed around for the small fashion show so I hear.

Kimura U has been in the Tokyo fashion scene for a few years and gained popularity quickly with her girly lolita style (which seems to be very inspired by sweets and candy). She is a frequent model in Harajuku and even was appointed Kawaii Ambassador by Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

She is currently working on designing her own clothing and when she’s not modeling she appears in many TV shows around Japan spreading her good vibes and cute fashion sense.
Here is one of her video tutorials on “Moe (pronounced “mo-eh”) Hara” make-up on Kawaii Pateen’s channel.
If you went the event please let me know, I’d love to hear more of what happened,
