Nao is a 24 years old Chief Designer at Avantgarde Harajuku; the most influential legwear boutique in Tokyos street fashion scene. When I first met her, she was strolling down the street in a white super mini dress with originally designed converse. She had an air about her that was very original and unique. Intrigued by her, one sunny Saturday afternoon, I decided to catch up with Nao to get to know her more over coffee to chat up about what the current state of style world as she sees it, her work as a designer and her dreams. After having this conversation with her, I realized that she is such an inspirational woman! My hope is that many young women can learn to follow the examples of someone like Nao, to be more independent, secure with themselves and not be afraid to follow their passion!
