Brand information / About the designer

―What inspired you to become a fashion designer? Describe developments leading up to the brand launch.

Background: When she was a child, she wanted clothes that were not girly, so she requested her grandmother, who worked at a seamstress, to make them for her using her favorite fabrics and designs. She then enrolled in Esmod Japon Tokyo School. After learning about design, patterns, and presentation, she joined Linda Atelier and then moved to STIL Corporation, the company behind YOICHI NAGASAWA. After working on the Paris Collection and corporate projects, she became independent. Since 2013, she have been working as MEGMIURA, and in 2016, she launched my prêt-à-porter line MEGMIURA WARDROBE. In 2016, she launched her ready-to-wear line, MEGMIURA WARDROBE, which she rebranded as MEGMIURA WARDROBE for the 2021 AW season.

―What is the brand’s concept? What do you want to communicate through fashion designing?
