TogaDESIGNER NAME: Yasuko Furuta

BACKGROUND: Originally from Tokyo, Yasuko graduated from Esmode in Paris before going on to work as a freelance costume maker.

SIGNATURES: ‘Toughness and unique sexiness, hidden in elegance that uses complex female images to evoke all the senses. Novel designs made using peculiar patterns, original materials, and combinations of different fabrics.’

TRADEMARK PIECE: ‘I think what our customers like about Toga is its exquisite balancing of contradictions, such as the combination of conflicting materials, interpretation of classic elements into casual styles, and the elegant presentation of sportswear elements.’

COLLECTION: ‘Crudity, durability, roughness, toughness, and rubber.’

WHAT MAKES LONDON WOMENSWEAR SO EXCITING?  ‘There is a complex mix of traditional and independent cultures in London. I’m delighted to exhibit Toga in London, which has produced such a variety of cultures. Through Toga, I want to produce new ideas, which will become future standards.’

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO IN YOUR STUDIO? ‘Rock ‘n’ roll.’
