Look for at NYFW FW24 Runway show : 8 Men's


FW24 theme

In the car on the way to the gym, the view from the car in my nervousness, wanting my father's praise, the stand looking thin and desolate even though it was still bright outside, my father looking dirty and old but glowing.


Brand concept

Through boxing, which I have been doing for many years, I have been able to shine in various ways based on my life experience of not being what I wanted to be, of being one of the few people who see me among many who don't see me, and of continuing to struggle in that situation.


Designer/Brand bio

I have been practicing boxing since my childhood, and after graduating from high school, I began my career as a professional boxer in 2018. Following my retirement in 2021, I aspired to turn my passion into a profession. Given my love for creating things since childhood and my interest in fashion as a hobby during my student years, I chose to pursue a career in fashion. In 2022, I enrolled in the Vantan Design Institute Tokyo campus.
