About the Designer
It was in 2012 when I began sewing Lolita fashion garments. I first discovered the style in the mid 2000's when I stumbled upon my first Gothic Lolita Bible and it was love at first sight. I had been sewing from a young age, so my first coordinate was almost completely handmade. Today, I pursue my passion as the full-time designer and owner of A. Gato Designs. The name doesn't just celebrate my love of cats, but also honors my family. Without my grandmothers, who taught me to sew, and my parents, who encouraged me to follow my dreams, I would not have made it to where I am today. To date, I have participated in several fashion shows alongside other designers such as Sweet Mildred, Belladonna, and I Do Declare.
