About Me

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 moved to the UK in 2001 and offered limited service for designers, while 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 have been "Palace Seamstress" since 2017 and I am proud that my services are well appreciated in Crystal Palace.

Now my children are grown, I am 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.
