It`s been a while after I saw them last time…
it was when we said Hi to each other at their backstage of their concert.
Still, they are very cute and wearing TSUMORI CHISATO in their own original way.

I had the discussion with Mika Ninagawa, the photographer, at her home/attelier.
Inside her house, there is the real Mika World that no one could imagine from outside!
Her photos are enlarged and put on the wall like wall-paper.
The room where we discussed had a photo of Cherry blossom trees at night…
felt like as if I were in the outer space.
Upper floor is is her home, but still is very Mika feeling.
I found some of her son`s car toys, which made her home much more special.

20th anniversary Show & Party

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Hello!
I`d like to share some more from the 20th anniversary show and party…
I haven`t done shows in Tokyo for a while, but I was so happy to have all pretty girls for the show!
Kristina, the girl who wore the first look is the same girl that we used for my last Paris show. She happened to be in Tokyo for this day, so I booked her immediately!
She`s from Kazakhstan and is very “Turkish feeling”, looks great for this collection.

20th anniversary show and party

It`s been a long time since I worked with Angela last time!
When Angela was still a high school student and when I used to show my collection in Tokyo, I used to book her for my shows.
I was glad to see that she hasn`t changed so much.

This is a photo of myself doing the final fitting just before the show started.
Quite calm.
In Paris, I`m always extremely busy during the show, doing the final fitting and checking, letting the girls go down the runway.
But this time, I saw my collection from the audience side.
It was so different and nice!
Never knew that the models walk so fast on the runway…

20th anniversary show and party

The theme for this season was Turkey, so I used red color as the key color for this
party venue.
I specially ordered red food and cocktail for this party and used red flowers on the
table with our original table cloth.

Hello! TSUMORI CHISATO is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
On June 25th, we invited those people who have supported us over the years and held a party with a fashion show at the Ritz Carlton Tokyo.
Let me share some photos…
I asked Yomo-san (Saru international) for the show direction and host of the party.
He has supported me for a long time now… when I used to show my collections in Tokyo and also he was the host for my wedding.
He`s almost like my brother!!
Don Konishi san, my friend since I was a Bunka Fashion School student made the toast.
The special bow tie that we made specially for this day is looking great on him.
He`s also wearing TSUMORI CHISATO MENS shirt.

He`s also my stage mother!

Kaho Minami, the actress, showed up as well.
She`s always so beautiful and gorgeous…
The new dress is looking great on her.

A draw was held during the party.
Kakizawa san from the “Potager” won the “Chisato chan doll”!
“Potager” is famous for its vegetable cakes.
She kindly made a special mini cake for this party, to be given out to everybody as a gift.
“Potager” cakes are all natural sweet taste and I love them.
