Tokyo Fashion Trend Setter: Fashion director Souta Yamaguchi

Souta Yamaguchi has many job titles, including stylist, fashion director and shop owner. He is the trend setter and creator of fashion culture. Yamaguchi opened a shop called Mikiri Hasshin in 2006 at the age of 23. The shop handles mainly the works of up-and-coming designers who have yet to be widely recognized. He has introduced early on the current top Tokyo fashion brands such as ANREALAGE, FACETASM and writtenafterwards, drawing attention. He then produced iconic shops in the Tokyo fashion scene as well as events at fashion malls.

  • He is now introducing a lifestyle brand called KORI-SHOW, which proposes new craftsmanship that brings joy to modern living while treasuring traditional Japanese skills and their backgrounds. Yamaguchi has used bold ideas to update products, breaking with ordinary collaborations between traditions and designs. He now aims at advancing overseas with the brand. We look at how the brand is being developed. We also closely follow how Yamaguchi is trying to create the "next Tokyo fashion scene" as he continues to explore new possibilities of fashion.
