Amazing experience! Materials from Tokyo, dress expertly made in London, delivered to me on the west coast! Kaori was so thoughtful and dedicated to getting this rig for me. She took time to Skype to ensure accurate measurements and kept me up to date every step of the way, offering me options on finish and sending pictures to inform my decision. The dress fits fantastically and I have received many compliments. Would not hesitate to work with Kaori again. Thank you!

Thank you for visiting my shop.
All the items in my shop are handmade by me with couture technique.
I specialise in pleating, ruching and draping. Draping is something that can only be done well when it is handmade.
Fifties Hollywood glamour and vintage style inspire my designs.
I enjoy manipulating different prints using the pleating and draping processes. I love Japanese chirimen materials.
All the items are unique.
Love handmade !
