I was born in 1973 in Ise-Shima, Mie Prefecture, Japan.
I obtained my Ph.D. in organic chemistry and environmental science, conducting research on the production and decomposition of biodegradable plastics using components found in wood, such as cellulose and lignin. Instead of accepting an associate professor position, I joined a chemical company and, on my own, work diligently as the head of a research institute to explore new business ventures. Currently, I lead a team of 8 employees, ranging from their 30s to 60s.
In my personal life, I have a husband, two cats, and two children – a high school son and a middle school daughter. Most days, I spend the majority of my time in work clothes or suits. However, my perspective on fashion and lifestyle changed after discovering Kuno Risa’s podcast. Inspired by her school, where she caters to hardworking individuals in their 40s and beyond who want to improve their style without compromising their work and personal life, I propose the concept of “10% up in fashion sense” – a way to enhance one’s style without exerting too much effort.
My approach includes using various measurements to diagnose body shapes and facial features, taking into account personal coloring based on the four seasons, and conducting psychological assessments that consider lifestyle, social standing, and preferences (Psychological Diagnosis of Clothing). With these evaluations, I offer coordinated outfits that achieve a harmonious blend of appearance, color, and psychological characteristics.
