TFAへの応募動機Motive to apply to TFA


With overseas sales increasing, I had been contemplating the real question of, what happens if/when I hold an overseas exhibition? This question was my number one motive to apply.

受賞時のお気持ちHow do you feel winning the award?


I was simply happy. But after that, I felt slightly baffled at the lack of transition time between the Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter seasons.

世界中にはさまざまなアワードやコンテストがありますが、その中でTFAはどのようなアワードだと思いますか。There are many different types of awards around the world. What type of award is the TFA to you?


I don't know much about awards around the world so it is difficult to say, but among all the contests in Japan, I think TFA has the most direct connection with opportunities. I think that being given opportunities, instead of just award money, is the largest merit In our profession.

TFA2015 & TFA2016 受賞デザイナーの活動などをご覧になって、どう感じられましたか。How did you feel after seeing the activities of the TFA 2015 & TFA 2016 award winning designers?


I was envious, seeing brands doing well overseas.

パリのショールームでの発表に向けて、意気込みをお願いいたします。Can we catch a bit of your enthusiasm looking towards the announcement at the Paris Showroom?


There's not a big difference in my state of mind. Whether its quality wise or price wise or from any other aspect, I simply think I should continue doing what I've always been doing.
