“ACUOD” is an abbreviation of “Ace Creation Unisex Original Dress” and also a coined word of “douka” ( “assimilation” in Japanese) spelled backwards. The brand name simultaneously holds meaning of 2 opposite words defined below:
"Assimilation" The process to adapt or adjust something different and sublime to a new dimension. "Dissimilation" The process of transforming the familiar to something heterogenous.
ACUOD intends to set new values by breaking boundaries of opposing themes: man / woman, street / mode, casual / formal.
It is eager to take in elements and concepts regardless of genre, questing standards of fashion and culture.
