"Kawaii" (cute) and "Kakkoii" (cool) - two very distinct styles in Japan, and traditionally, completely separate.
Being born and raised in Japan, *kawaii* culture has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. It's evident everywhere you look in pop culture. Kakkoii, on the other hand, has always been more underground. It hasn't been as prominent as Kawaii because it goes beyond the surface. It's a way of thinking, a way of life, whose momentum has been slowly building...
The time I spent studying in Boston for high school and university opened my eyes to another culture and other ways of thinking.
In the States I studied Fashion Marketing and Merchandising and began modeling as well. I was lucky to be finalist in the Miss International Beauty Pageant 2007. Aside from being extremely exciting, it offered me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and learn a little about their cultures.
Most importantly, I gained a new perspective on what beauty is.
Through that experience I realized there is a lot more to Fashion than what is on the surface. Attitude and confidence both play a major roll in the creation of REAL beauty and originality .
After returning to Japan I started focusing on a way to fuse "Kawaii" and "Kakkoii". I wanted to take the outward glitz and playfulness of "Kawaii" and give it something meaningful, substance. On the other hand, I wanted to make "Kakkoii" a little more glamorous and more accessible. The result is "Kakko-Kawaii"!
As the CEO and designer for the branding of "Kakko-Kawaii", my goal is to offer women a new and unique way to express themselves. One that allows women to be beautiful while abandoning the confines of traditional "Kawaii" culture and encourages an independent, decisive lifestyle--one that promotes and celebrates the natural allure of a woman being herself!!
