Hello… It has been a quick year. I can’t tell it was a great year..…
I lost my dearest dad it was very very very painful… But same time, I have met many friends and family who are helpful and believing in me… I am so lucky to meet people like them, and I would really love to continue helping and encouraging to be better each others.
2019…It will be another challenging year. I think as a human in general, it is important to be trying to be better yourself.
The past year, I have been making lots of products related designs…but I listen to my dad’s word ” life is all about ” Dan shari ” – Art of decluttering and organzing… It will be my lifetime motivation!
It was a fantastic time announced as an “International Fashion Designer”

I have been working in Fashion for quite a number of years.
I trained all round for fashion at the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo,
then got the job as a hat designer in Tokyo,
studied further millinery advance in London, and got the job as a milliner in London…
Still, I wasn’t sure where to go next…but I like the idea I can make both hats and dresses.
When I studied at Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo,
I showcasing my collection for the first time there in public.
I was already doing hats and outfits all the time, since then…
I will keep at that, and any occasions, but I really enjoy special occasion like competing for an occasion.
So If you have any special occasion, please let me know, I can help you with the eye-catching design, just for you!!
Summertime is switched to Wintertime,
means day is getting shorter and shorter…
Wintertime we need to motivate yourself!!
I just realized how serious it is seeing the location of Scotland.
I was so shocked when I see this map related where I was born and where I am now.

Edinburgh is 55 degree. London is 51 degree. Tokyo is 35 degree that is similar latitude to LA, Malta, Morocco…
So we need some entertainment for yourself.
Things we haven’t done for a long time…
Finally managed to see ” Incredible 2 ”
They never disappoint us!
Quality of the graphic is amazing…Their hair’s detail is unreal!!
Again, Designer ” Edna Mode ” is making us very entertaining!!
Oh, I wish I could make myself such strong character s her!!
I so recommend for any age for this film!! Such entertainment for Friday night!
I live with you, so understand the lifestyle has changed now…
I was brought up in Japan.
My mum used to make my clothes including jumper, School Uniform ( Hand knitted, machine knitted, occasion dress, jacket, coat, and cape, hand embroidered napkins for my school lunch and bag. ) everything from scratch for all 4 kids…
So I couldn’t buy the clothes until my teenage. ( I know I was so spoiled to have a wonderful mum who made all my clothes. )
I am used to designing my clothes and my mum make them for me.
Most of the clothes took 2-4 weeks, but she never did like her job, just for family members.
Perhaps, that is the reason, I can’t help making stuff.
I have the desire to buy things.
Most of my clothes are from the supermarket ( recently ) or charity shop never from online…
Occasionally I alter my outfits to make it completely different.
Bargen from the high street retail shop.
It was a dress but Length was not my style, so I chopped and made a top. Rest of the fabric became matching flat cap. I got complements many occasions from the people when I wear them even at the supermarket.. lol
I used rest of the fabric and added similar faux leather. And I wear a black leather pencil skirt to finish!!
That way, not wasting and keeping a style for you, too. 🙂
People’s conscious is changing slowly and big way.
It has been a long time to decide on the venue…
I had one opportunity that I was really looking for that had to cancel for the great reason.
It wasn’t anybody’s fault, just as it happens sometimes because we are not selfish!!
As a designer, people think you should be aiming for Paris Fashion Week for where all the best buyers gathering.
But in my mind saying, it is not my venue…
The reason why I was thinking that way because I really don’t want to go into the trap in the bad wheel of the
The big brand is just wasting their energy for producing new, but same time burning them,
to protect their brand credibility.
I would rather serve my energy to people who need for. Waste not want!
So I feel good when I did my show in Edinburgh with part of Cancel Cancer Africa Charity show with my dear friend
model who should shine in the huge stage like in the Cinema, or Paris Fashion Week!
