On Wednesday, October 19th, Japanese label The Dress & Co. HIDEAKI SAKAGUCHI showcased their 2012 Spring/Summer collection on the runway at Tokyo Midtown.
Born in 1973, Brand founder Hideaki Sakaguchi graduated from Hosei University with a degree in interior design. He launched his brand under the name Jelly Garcia in 2002, then renamed it to The Dress & Co. HIDEAKI SAKAGUCHI from the 2009-2010 A/W season onward. His collection was shown at Rendez-Vous Paris in 2008, which led to orders from influential overseas shops and a stronger international presence.
The Dress & Co. Hideaki Sakaguchi 2012 Spring/Summer collection runway show at Japan Fashion Week was titled “Californian Twilight” with a subtitle of “The Classical Surf”. The collection featured casual California-inspired looks as well as a few swimwear pieces providing an extra nod to California’s most valuable asset – the beach.
