While I was collecting Vintage jeans, I realized I wanted to make my own original jeans.
I studied at a fashion college for three years and worked for a jeans manufacturer in Kojima, Kurashiki city, Okayama, Japan for about five years. After that, I left the company and became independent and worked in the planning and production of clothing for other companies. Three years later, in 2004, I launched my own brand. I have always loved to make things, and I have been using a sewing machine since I was a teenager.
When I was looking for vintage clothing in the USA when I was 18 or 19 years old, I thought it would be great if I could make my own jeans, and that's how it all started.
VINTAGE LEVI'S from the 1950s-60s.
The source of inspiration has not changed since the beginning. Denim, military, outdoor, and all vintage things are my inspiration.
There are many people who have succeeded in the fashion business without going to school, but if you can go to school, it is better to go than not to go because they can teach you the basics, but I think self-study and experience are possible.
I don't know who the designer is, but I am impressed with who designed the 5-pocket in the past and who created the military and workwear designs and patterns that are still carried on today.
Because vintage American casual wear and military styles are made with an emphasis on comfort and durability.
I like to work in the planning of the material the overall composition of the design.
I would love to own a Camper van if it is possible.
There is a flea market at Shitennoji Temple in Osaka on the 21st of every month. Both a flea market and the temple are highly recommended.
I like surfing and I like to go to the ocean in Miyazaki because the waves are good.
Personally, I like the Prisoner Coat. Inspired by the New York State Prisoner Coat, this coat has a very simple design without lining, but it is useful for layering and daily use.
I hope for the war to end soon.
