A Northeast USA Alternative Fashion Conference

fashion_061RuffleCon is a conference held in Stamford, 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!

RuffleCon will be held on October 2nd – 4th, 2015 at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, CT.

Our Mission Statement

RuffleCon has the goal of being a quality annual conference focused on elegant and cute alternative fashions from all parts of the world, including but not limited to Japanese street fashion, historical fashion, and otherworldly style to help spread knowledge of alternative fashion through educational, entertaining, and mind-expanding panels, shows, and hands-on activities as well as direct access to international and local vendors, artists, and entities directly involved in the alternative fashion subcultures.
