With a sculptor father and a jeweller mother, from early childhood Yuima Nakazato was raised surrounded by modern art in an environment that celebrated self-expression. He began as a self-taught tailor before entering the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp's Fashion Department.
Yuima’s graduation collection earned multiple awards in Europe and in 2016 he presented his first Paris Couture collection as an official guest designer selected by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. He continually combines the newest in technology and craftsmanship in his creation processes.
