Main Manufacturing Countries

Yojiro Kake was born in Hyogo, Japan in February 1983. After finishing high school he went onto study at the Ueda Yasuko School of Fashion in Osaka. For 3 years he pursued the technical skills required in womenswear and menswear techniques. After graduating he worked within a private company as a patternmaker and designer. While he still cherished his work, he understood that in this area of manufacturing the only objective was making a profit. He soon realised a need to study fashion outside of Japan in order to rediscover and establish his own ideas, beliefs and creativity. He left the company and made the life changing decision to study at Polimoda International Institute of Fashion Design & Marketing in Florence where he is now based.
