I live in America, but I spent a large portion of my youth in England (around the punk scene of the early 80s) which is where I saw/knew many girls/women wearing such clothing. Some of their big influences were Alice in Wonderland, John Donne poetry, the emergence of The Cure and Depeche Mode, etc. So, I always associated these types of clothing with the goth/punk/new wave scenes of the 80s, but since looking at your link I can see a specific difference between Perona's Lolita style and the previously mentioned styles.
