As she is building her career on real fashion, but she has more visions with kimono artisans.

As she says,
“This project has two aims. The first aim is to demonstrate real kimono beauty & elegance, and publish it to the world, which we believe to arouse great interest in kimono all over the world.”

“The second aim is to encourage kimono artisans, and make the kimono industry re-flourish through making bigger market of kimono in the world, as art of kimono creation is on the verge of a crisis because of reduction of kimono market, aging of artisans, and lack of their successors.”
