Tokyo Fashion Photography: Mariko & Kimono Dress

The other day, I did a quick photoshoot with the lovely Mariko, an entrepreneur and fashion & beauty blogger. I was introduced to Mariko through a friend, and after meeting up for a talk over tea in Omotesando, I felt extremely impressed by her achievements and passion for her work. Mariko is CEO of her own company, where the concept is empowering women to live freely, express themselves and reach their full potentials. She is also part of the Association for Preservation and Inheritance of Japanese Traditional Culture, where she produces kimono dresses. In this shoot, she modeled one of the kimono dresses in a lush green Japanese garden backdrop.
I'm so happy to have the chance to work with a beautiful and strong woman like Mariko, whose meaningful work focuses on making a difference in the lives of women, as well as bringing light upon the traditional cultures and artwork of Japan. I'm really looking forward to working with her more!
