A new fashion brand ROKUBUEN that is beginning to attract attention in Japan.
This brand has many parts where detailed information is not officially disclosed.
But in our interview it became a little clearer.

" For more information about fashion designers? "
We have three main fashion designers.
One is Yuko Mukai. She is the last disciple of famous fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto. She has a strong concept of creating costumes, most of which is close to the concept of haute couture.
The other is Yushi Takeuchi. He is still one of the most influential fashion college students in Japan. He is young and feels that he will definitely be an important designer in the future.
The third person is still kept secret.

" What do you think about sustainable? "
ROKUBUEN is a fashion brand with a weak concept of selling clothes and a strong concept of expression. So it's still a weak brand. The number of products produced is very small, and we are conscious of clothes that can be worn for many years regardless of fashion. Therefore, half of the clothes announced this term are modified versions of the previous term.

" What do you think is important for ROKUBUEN? "
It may be the opposite of the original fashion. I want to make clothes that can be worn for many years, and I am conscious of making them feel the traditional culture of Japan. The price of Japanese-specific fabrics is high, which is a problem. Also, we are conscious of making our feelings fun like cosplay. We like samurai and ninja kimonos.

" What kind of development are you planning for ROKUBUEN in the future? "
To be honest, we may be thinking of a different direction from general fashion brands. We will change the way we create products and the way we publicize. It feels like it's against business, so you may not be able to get out of a weak brand.
We still like it, because we enjoy making clothes and expressing.
