MMN INTERVIEW: Chatting With the Producer of the Very First “Doll” Model, Lulu Hashimoto

24.August.2016 | FASHION


―What events will we be seeing Lulu-chan at next?

I definitely want to do luluroom again. Possibly bring a polaroid camera next time too. It’s romantic to see a picture gradually drawn out on a white background.


I’m currently looking for a place to make it happen. I call out to all cute stores from across the nation — you know who to call if you want to hold an event at your place!



―What are you plans for the near future? Anything you’d like to try out in terms of videos? I would love to see Lulu-chan move more, I believe it leaves a bigger impact.


I’d like for her to go about it as a fashion model first. But of course I’d like to work on her visuals, perhaps have her model for a brand that aims for the doll-look and have her bring the ideal doll-image to life. Although Lulu-chan is a doll, she does have human aspects to her, so it’d be interesting to see her in a girly-casual look that represents Harajuku-kei street fashion.



I’d love to make videos. Obviously I’d want to focus on the kawaii aspect, but since her identity is very conceptual, shooting a music video would be an interesting take on her.



I’ve also got two photo books on the line. Rather than doing everything myself, I’m hoping to curate a number of different creators that place an emphasis on kawaii when creating. Whether it be handmade accessories, apparel, hair and makeup, photographers, I hope to make something that’s collaborative, fun and exciting.
