On January 17th, Kimura U came to Portland State University. Who is Kimura U? She is one of three Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs appointed Kawaii Ambassadors who’s mission is to promote Japanese youth culture, fashion, and pop culture overseas. Here is Kimura U’s official website-
And her official Facebook page-
The Portland/Oregon Tea and Cake Society had a big meetup to meet “the most pink creator of the world” and it was an absolute joy! She was so cute and friendly!
There was first a meet and greet. She signed autographs, posed for pictures, and some people even brought her gifts. I posed for a picture with her, but I felt so derpy next to her. She was too cute!
Then she kindly posed for a group picture.
Kimura U is also a fashion designer so there was also a fashion show. Her brand is KOKOkim. Here’s KOKOkim’s Facebook page- https://www.facebook.com/KOKOkim

The clothes are too cute! I will admit, I’m not really into pastels a super cute styles, but I certainly appreciate cute clothes and there are some things in the collection that I really want.
I apologize for the quality of my photos. There was a light at the foot of the runway that really blew out my photos. Also, I was using my cell phone camera. I’ve tried adjusting the contrast and brightness to make them a little better (so if some of them look a little odd, that’s probably why), but I don’t know if that helped much.
Blah, my pictures suck.
On Kimura’s Facebook page, they had WAY better pictures of the models and outfits so here they are.
And then after the fashion show, Kimura sang! She’s so talented. She draws and drew many of the graphics and pictures that are on her clothes, is a designer, and sings!
It was such a pleasure to meet her and to see her clothes. I even bought a few things.
