NIPPON STYLE:
"Harmony woven with love for Fukui and solid designing skills"
Mitsuru Nishizaki (Ujoh designer)

Ujoh marked its 3rd runway show at the latest Tokyo Collection. Both the designer Mitsuru Nishizaki and pattern maker Ako Shinohara, who is his wife, have worked as pattern makers for YOHJI YAMAMOTO for years. The pieces are carefully crafted and three-dimensional, with a touch of elegance.

  • The designer uses large amounts of textiles made in Fukui, his home prefecture. His love for Fukui and the solid skills he honed at the renowned maison are what make the brand shine. The program focuses on the 2015 Spring/Summer collection, Fukui-based companies that support him and how he gives full play to his creativity to the last moment.
