"Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved the strong and cute and sexy girls in Japanese manga. Also, my parents used to take me to museums and concerts. I was especially attracted by the girls and the pale colors in the paintings of the French impressionist painter Auguste Renoir .Women with such a different view of the world were always the source of my fantasies .During my university years, I was also fascinated by the Nouvelle Vague artists Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, French actresses and singers France Gall .I love both Japanese kawaii culture and French elegance in equal measure .And only I can create lingerie and clothes that combine these different worlds.”
