Show at Bunka Fashion college

Friday, July 29th, 2011

There was a show at Bunka Fashion college where I graduated in June.
This show happened on behalf of Bunka’s wish to get students a close look at a fashion show and experience it.

All the looks were same as the Paris Collection but the venue was different so made a difference in stage direction.
Bunka’s hall was very large and I thought I should use this large space for stage direction so I made a box shaped runway.
Until the models appear on the runway, I made the models silhouette showing in the back. It was very simple but it had a strong impact.

Make up was done by Uchiide-san from Shu Uemura and Hair styling was done by Kamo-san from Mod’s Hair.
The hair style was a special version just for this show.
It was arranged differently utilizing model’s each character so it was different from Paris collection but was very cute!

Shooting in Paris

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

I visited Paris for the shooting for the mook book which will be published from Takarajima on August 29th.
It was great weather in Paris! Sunny and bright everyday.

We did the shoot right beneath the Eiffel tower.
With this dynamic great architecture in the back, I think the shooting went very well, with cool and powerful visuals.

I hope you all look forward to seeing it in the book soon!!

TSUMORI CHISATO is found in below 4 shops in New York.
Kisan, Bird, Opening Ceremony and Honey in the Rough.
I visited the shops while I was in New York few time ago.

A quite new client for us. I visited the shops without any appointment, but was so happy to see her wearing TSUMORI CHISATO !
Thank you, Thorunn and Oliver!


We’ve been working quite long with Honey in the Rough.
Ashley, the buyer was wearing TSUMORI CHISATO so nicely, was happy to see her!
It looked great on her.
As the store is located near John`s place, we went to visit the shop together.
