Congratulations to Ujoh designer Mitsuru Nishizaki, who yesterday was awarded the 9th DHL Designer Award at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo (#MBFWT).
Nishizaki san, who formerly trained as a pattern cutter with Yohji Yamamoto, joins the prestigious ranks of designers who have won this award, including several other of Butikku's exiting selection of designers:
Nishizaki said, “I am honored to receive such a prestigious award. I am sincerely grateful to everyone who has supported in the day-to-day efforts at Ujoh. In our quest to achieve global expansion, I would like to take the opportunity offered by this award to step up Ujoh’s overseas expansion efforts.” We're proud to have been the first store in the Western hemisphere to sell Ujoh and we wish Nishizaki every success. Watch out for more Ujoh at Butikku in future.
