Brand information / About the designer

―What inspired you to become a fashion designer? Describe developments leading up to the brand launch.

I started expressing on garments instead of painting on canvas during the art activity when I was 16. And it cotinues through the various events and encounters up to today.

―What is the brand’s concept? What do you want to communicate through fashion designing? What are the images of men and women you want to project?

Our concept is “Creation = Story”. We believe that it is needed, in case, incomprehensible “?” with depth rather than superficial image.

―What is your source of inspiration in creating fashion? What is your process of developing a design concept?

I, first, focus on the problems that I feel in my life. Then I seek a solution through fashion. Fashion is the history of solving a problem. I used to have the ideals to be seen, but now I believe that fashion has a potentioal to solve wider range of problems.
