NIPPON STYLE:
Keita Maruyama - The Designer Who Casts a Spell on Top Artists

Keita Maruyama's clothes touch people's hearts. They lift your spirits and give you energy to fuel work and life. In summer 2014, Maruyama held the 20th anniversary exhibition "Maruyama Keikan", showing his representative works and stage costumes selected from his collection of 15,000 items. After graduating from Bunka Fashion College, Maruyama started his career as an in-house designer and turned freelance in 1990. He made his debut in Fall/Winter 1994-1995 Tokyo Collection at the age of 29, and went on to show his collection in Paris in 1997. Fusing Japanese styles and European tradition, he has won international acclaim with his vivid colors, flower embroidery and gorgeous silhouettes.

  • Maruyama is best known for his stage costumes. He has designed costumes for the popular Japanese band DREAMS COME TRUE for over 20 years, and been a favorite of other musicians and actors. He has never stopped pursuing happiness for wearers of his clothing without being swayed by trends. We look at Maruyama's unique designer skills and his latest collection.
