My collection explores a system through the idea of Metabolism architecture. Looking into urbanites who constantly adapt functionally and physically. My collection focuses on people who face environmental changes such as the need to have a mask available for travel or having accessible shopping bags. My idea came about from reflecting on Japan’s ancient Ise Shrine that has been rebuilt every 2 decades. Promoting the idea that everything is impermanent and needs to be adaptable to keep evolving.
“Raised in Tokyo, I was immersed around an urban community where the lifestyle represented a constant change in environment and society. I have always been fascinated by how design can improve the way we live. Following the idea “To design for the purpose of tomorrow” whether that is looking into the current situation or through discoveries.”
“I enjoy the process of creating an innovative design or to redevelop past creation and embodying the elements of adaptability. Through the years, I worked under fashion brands such as Engineered Garments by Nepenthes, Kozaburo, and Melitta Baumeister. Specializing in patternmaking and concept development.”
