- Tell us about your style today.
I was told that today's theme was 'summer' and 'matsuri' (festivals)...
matsuri is of course yukata
and I love yukata.
Every time when I go to see fireworks
I wear a different yukata.
I adapted the yukata a little...
How do you say?
accessories I made myself,
and the color is a bit childish.
It is pinkish.
But I am not a kid anymore,
so I have made it more adult-like with a camisole
and a choker.
I mixed it up in a cool way.
- Where do you usually purchase your yukata?
I buy yukata at vintage clothing stores,
and yukata specialty shops.
And also on the internet.
- Do you go to flea markets and places like that?
Yes, I sometimes go there.
- Which ones?
- Now you study at Bunka Fashion College.
- And you study the stylist course, right?
I am already in my third year now and my elective is 'fashion director.'
- Oh, you changed?
Yes, I did.
- So when you graduate
- what kind of work would you like to do?
My dream is to have my own boutique.
I want to do all kinds of design.
And I want to become a designer.
- Would you like to open your boutique...
- in Japan, Taiwan, or another country?
- In Japan. In Tokyo?
I really like it here!
- About where in Tokyo?
I haven't thought about that, yet...
but I want to have a boutique that doesn't just sell clothes,
but mix it with a cafe.
To make it fun for customers, like they're friends.
Yes, an easy place to visit.
Not a place with lots of pressure to buy.
- A place where you feel at ease.
Right, a place where you feel at ease.
- You took lots today.
- Your yukata collection,
- you have lots of beautiful yukata.
- Please tell me what you have brought today.
Yukata and obi...
and cords for yukata.
And ribbons that I made myself.
I've been doing that since high school.
- About how many have you made?
- The number.
Gosh. I also sell them on the internet.
- Oh, really?
- That many?
When I was in Taiwan I sold a lot of them.
- They're really pretty!
Not at all.
My mom makes them together with me.
My mom is really good at it. Better than me.
- Thank you very much for today.
