I am originally from Japan, and I have always been creative and industrious, working as a sample-maker for various designers in Tokyo from early 90s, offering a versatile service in the industry. I can sew, knit, crochet, embroider and paint print designs.
I came to the UK in 2001 and offered limited service for designers, because my children were small and tight deadlines were not ideal.
Along the way, I found that seamstressing was a good way to meet local people and to contribute to the community. I am proud that my services are well appreciated in Crystal Palace.
Now my children are grown, I am getting back into full service, including sample and costume making for designers and productions.
It was thrilling to be a small part of big film costume teams, crocheting for actresses such as Dame Judy Dench (Murder on the Orient Express 2017) and Margot Robbie (Mary, Queen of Scots 2019).
I am excited about shifts in the fashion industry in recent years and that I am thriving in the new environment.
