clothing tells a story of the wearer and the creator through design, art, functionality, and science. my goal is to facilitate the storytelling of individuals through my knowledge in the clothing industry.
i graduated UC Davis with a degree in textiles and clothing. through my four years, i gained an interdisciplinary view of clothing – from the design, aesthetics, styling, production, marketing, chemistry, functional, social and psychological, to the economic aspects of clothing.
currently, i am working as an allocator for Uniqlo, i evaluate west coast retail business, and control inventory of stores. observing the sales forecasts and trends between all 51stores in the us to determine when to push or pull items to maximize sales weekly. being born in japan, raised in san diego, i utilize my background to be in the crosspaths of both cultures to create optimal plan, strategies, and processes that benefit customers and staff that is approved by the ceo.
clothing and style has always been a way for me to communicate my story and personality to others. i am passionate in telling stories through clothing and giving others a voice through it along the way. i am a hard worker that can work individually as well as in a team setting.
