The dark side of social media is that, within seconds, anything can be blown out of proportion and taken out of context. And it's very difficult not to get swept up in it all.
I love meeting people, and I know it's so difficult for people to come up to me and introduce themselves, so when they do, I'll grab them and hug them. It makes their day, you know? I love that, and I get positive energy from that.
My uniform is usually just comfortable clothing. Being a stylist, you spend most of the day at photo shoots covered in safety pins.
Social networking inspires me a lot and how we are related and connected to each other.
Having plants and flowers in my space makes me feel very calm and Zen. For me, it's important to meditate every morning to be very clear in the head, and nature really helps me do the same thing.
Fashion is such an insider's club, but slowly, the playing field is evening out. Through social media, everyone can have a front-row seat.
I'm half-Japanese, so I collect toys, like a Yayoi Kusama stuffed pumpkin.
I'm not an elitist. I hate the fashion industry sometimes because it becomes so focused on the elite.
I think old people should just be old and go away.
I'm not a designer, I'm a creator.
My muse is the digital world.
I like places where you can dance to crazy music, like Bedlam or Eastern Bloc in the East Village.
I live between Europe, America and Asia.
I was born in Japan, so for me, Uniqlo is a family brand. My granny used to wear Uniqlo. And my Italian dad wore Uniqlo. I wore Uniqlo, of course.
I think when you start talking about money, it stops the whole creative process for me.
