VISION OF FASHION
What are the influences that Japanese culture brings to your work?
Japan is first of all my training, especially the Bunka Fashion College which I came from. Today, I would say that it's a certain sense of the garment cutting. A form of modernity, close to the avant-garde. And everyday, a sense of service, precision of well done work and efficiency. That too, I think, comes to me from Japan.
Your creations blend elegance with modernity. For what kind of customers are they?
I call her "the Ken Okada woman". She is elegant, refined, cultivated, she has taste. She is also very active, assuming her personal life as well as her professional life, with its contradictions. She wants to be different and express her personality.
