Of the brands which were scheduled to participate in RakutenFWT 2020 A/W if there was any brand in particular which you were interested in or looking forward to seeing, please tell us.

I think HARE is the most interesting

In your opinion, what is the originality, uniqueness of Japanese brands/fashion, and/or what is it that makes Japanese brands/fashion interesting?

As said when I came last time, there’s a bit of lack of uniqueness among Japanese brands of Tokyo fashion week

What is the most important topic in fashion, between the 2000’s ~ 2010’s?

The rise of fast fashion which changed completely the speed of everything in the system

How do you think the fashion industry will become in the 2020’s?

It is now already too fast and with a lot of waste. I feel that there will be a rationalization of need slowing the pace and being more respectful of the environment

Is there anything you hope for or expect in future RakutenFWT?

To push more into creativity.

Please tell us your favorite or ‘must go’ suggestive spots in Tokyo.

I always love Shimokitazawa and there are so many restaurant which is hard to mention all
