Dear Diane, Dear Shaded viewers,
Tomomi met Ayako, the designer of uamou at Tokyo Vansankai. They got along instantly and they decided to make a collaboration collection – pistil x uamou.
Ayako's brother runs a cafe at the space – Yushokuya Boo. One of the uamou's was having tea togehter with us.
"plastic waltz" is open until 29 December 2011 at STUDIO UAMOU – 2k540 N-5 5-9 Ueno Taito-ku Tokyo
The space where uamou studio is called 2k540 AKI-OKA ARTISAN. The space opened a year ago to promote hand craft creaters to have their own retail space. It is under the rail way of JR – in between Akihabara and Okachimachi. When you are going to Tokyo for electronics shopping, or otaku(gig) culture visit – you should stop by to find out some Japanese craftsmanship.
