ABOUT THIS PROJECT

I am a Fashion designer, based in Florence, Italy. I was born in Hyogo, Japan in May 1989.

After finishing high school in Japan I went to study a Theater degree in Merced, California. After graduating I returned to Japan and worked as a retail assistant at Issey Miyake. I soon realised I wanted to study Fashion Design, however outside of Japan, in order to rediscover and establish my own ideas.

I then chose to study at Polimoda International Institute of Fashion Design & Marketing in Florence, as the school is known internationally and one of my favorite designers had graduated from there.
