“My ideology of fashion design is that it has to be a tangible representation of human existence. The clothes are a way for me to design life itself. Growing up in rural Japan, my connection with high fashion was developed through the natural surroundings of my hometown. The soothing sensation of the fast-flowing river gave me comfort; it made me feel ecstatic beyond words. I was engrossed by the everyday beauty that surrounded me, which is deeply ingrained in my work. As a result, my style was discovered naturally and organically. Then and now, nature has combined with my sense of style to form into something tangible, inevitably transforming into fashion. My creative concept focuses on forces molded by natural environemnts and human emotions. The themes of human anatomy, complex human thoughts, optical illusion, religion and reincarnation, and more are presented in fabrics, materials, and silhouettes. I work from these concepts as I create my garments. For example, the process of reincarnation can be represented by attaching leather to bone: two objects that had once died are united and transformed into something new representing the process of reincarnation. I once created an entire garment out of flattened cork, a material which communicates my concern with environmental issues. This enabled me to make an outfit completely out of organic matter. I enjoy creating wearable fabrics out of different materials such as household objects as well as combining different types of traditional fabrics. I like to create fashion as if it is multi-medium, sculptural art.


I am a Master of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from PARSONS Fashion Design and Society (2019 Honors),Master of Arts in Fashion Design from Paris College of Art Haute Technology and Haute Couture Fashion Design (2017 Honors) and a Bachelor of Arts from Tokyo Mode Gakuen College of Fashion and Design (2015 Honors). I’ve received prizes and awars including but not limited to: CFDA FASHION FUTURE GRADUATE SHOWCASE in NY (2019), Frank furt Style Award 1st Prize in Germany (2017), and Tokyo Mode Gakuen Creator Of The Year(2015). Currently based in New York, my inspiration derives from diverse points of views and cultures. WIthout them, it would be impossible for me to design and create.”

"Raised in Irvine, CA, I embraced Southern California's lifestyle, finding my style in casual yet refined t-shirts and jeans. My journey as a clothing designer began in San Francisco, where I went to university and found myself becoming a Master Tailor specializing in bespoke denim for a prestigious global brand. Transitioning to designing and managing experiential events worldwide, I've been fortunate to work in diverse locales from New York City to Mexico City to Dubai. With a passion for denim, I've sought education and volunteer opportunities, immersing myself in Vietnam's denim factories. My expertise led to recognition in Sportswear International's Best of Denim. I've been a guest speaker at Project Las Vegas, discussing sustainability and customization trends alongside luminaries like Amy Leverton of Denim Dudes.


Currently based in Los Angeles, I devote my time to designing for brands, offering consultation and specialized live customization services. You'll find me taking meetings over coffee in Arts District, picking up samples at clothing factories, or live chainstitching for stores and events. Combining clothing design and my unique skill in chainstitch embroidery, I've crafted bespoke pieces for notable figures including Naomi Osaka, Justin Timberlake, and Snoop Dogg. I'm inspired by vintage Americana and Japanese aesthetics. My passion is contributing to outstanding products that make a positive social impact."
