Akemie Shiroyama is a bag designer and owner of “exquis” boutique and her workshop where she design and make her bags, communicate with her customers, and she practice cello. Her bag creation is tailor made, one and only for each customer.
When she was working for apparel brand as a designer, she had a difficulty to find a perfect bag for her work. This is how she started designing her own bag. Thanks to her husband who were working for a bag maker, she had a connection with bag artisan. She designed and asked the artisan to produce for her, then she started to create collection lines for 7 seasons. However her interests shifted to more personal level – she decided to move onto order made that she could offer a really personalised service for each client.
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
Not having a strong style is her style. She is flexible, open minded, and she does not force her ideas to her clients. Rather she try to find a style and inner self of client, then she create a special gift to her client.
She does not make a target to achieve, but she is always ready for new challenge.
