Yuma Koshino 2010-11 A/W Collection
The 10th Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo is in progress, and several times each day TokyoFashion.com’s contributors are reporting back from runway shows all over town. On Wednesday March 24th, Japanese designer Yuma Koshino presented her 2010-2011 Autumn/Winter collection at Tokyo Midtown.
Yuma Koshino was literally born into the fashion world. Her mother Hiroko Koshino (along with her sisters Junko and Michiko) has been an influential and highly regarded Japanese fashion designer since the 1960s. Yuma Koshino graduated from Bunka Fashion College in 1990. Since her graduation, she has worked with designers at home and abroad, participated in Paris fashion shows, designed movie costumes, and created uniforms for both schools and hotels. She also held a position as a professor at Kyoto Seika University’s faculty of design in the department of architecture.
Yuma Koshino’s brand concept is “spiritual luxury”, and she targets independent, active women who appreciate fashion featuring selected fabrics and attention to detail. Click the thumbnails below and check out the full sized versions of all of the pictures for yourself.
