See You Next Year!

A Northeast USA Alternative Fashion Conference

RuffleCon is a conference held in New Haven, CT devoted to followers of cute, elegant alternative fashion in the Northeastern USA. RuffleCon is brought to you by a handful of alternative fashion enthusiasts who have been involved in the local community for years (over a decade, for some of us). We have been brought together by our love for lolita, goth, steampunk, or any other fashion from a rather shockingly long list, but one thing that unites us all is our commitment to creating for our communities an open, accepting forum devoted to the elegant, alternative fashion and its followers. We are dedicated to creating an atmosphere of learning and exploring within fashions new and old, and of course having fun while we’re at it!
