Born in Yokohama City. I tried to be a painter at first but started to be interested in transform a 3D to a 2D and have chased a career of fashion, remake or stylist. Thanks to the experience of street dance when I was a student of fashion, I worked as a back dancer and produce costumes for PV for Ayumi Hamasaki and Arisa Mizuki. I didn’t spent any apprenticeship of a drag queen but debuted at Ageha and am referred to as an accelerate drag queen.
It was a turning point to focus on graphic with a laptop instead of being a stylist when I prized at the exhibition for young artist held by H.P.France and when my home was burned down because of a short circuit. The pinch turned to be a chance and ia turning point for the current success. Watching performances and going around galleries, I have focused particularly on independent artists and felt that everything in my life is inspiration. I edit in my mind and draw on a sketch. When I’m stuck, I obsessively see late shows and sleep all day.
My recent project is to be in charge of a creative director of the renewal of shared place of the SHIBUYA 109 “40-year-anniversary project” and launch in May 2019 W-MAGIC, an unisex underwear apparel brand messaging that sex diversity should be accepted beyond the border of LGBT. With “RASHIKU YOURSELF (Be myself, be yourself)” as a concept, I try to realize a seamless society.
My favorite artist is Basquiat and John Galliano. I usually wear in a street style. My recommended artist now is a influencer, Momoka Nanbu, who is only 20 years old. She has a look very different from Japanese and has a good make-up skill. She now gets attention as a trend setter.
My motto is “Stop walking is not hopelessness but give-up, and keep walking is not a hope but your will (ARMS, a comic book).” That I don’t understand give-up is similar with my stance, and I was very impressed.
I had a chance to participate setting up a brunch of ladies fashion maker in previous job. Also learned about management and marketing.Then i came up with the ideas that young creators can be spread to the world.

In the cabin restaurant where I worked part-time, I told the editors of the fashion industry who were customers there, “I want to be an editor”. The magazine they worked for was a popular one published by Kodansha. At that time, I knew only Vogue as a fashion magazine, but that magazine was for college girls who had a different style from that of Vogue. I accumulated extensive experience there and I now think it was a good opportunity to be a creative director who decides the direction from looking around the whole situation.
In addition, during the travel to New York by myself when I was a student, I was inspired by the picture in which a black woman with a brown and gold dress in a magazine Surface at the old book store near Union Square. Also, I sneaked in Runway in the fashion week and sit in the front row to see a show. I was too stupid to be scared, but it was exciting experience.
