Chinami Tokushige, Designer of hHome

Q1. What made you decide to establish your own brand?

I have always loved taking photos, so I went to university where I could specialize in photography. To accentuate and brighten one's beauty at shooting, I started to make jewelries by myself. As I make more, I came up with more designs. Gradually, I shifted to more commercial and practical designs, and that was when I started to establish my own brand.




Q2. Please describe your production process.

I first make a design in my head and draw it out, gradually making it more practical. I usually make the prototype from there, but sometimes I start off making the prototype first. I process the work while balancing the design and practicality




Q3. What made you interested in NY market?

I have stayed in New York for a while in the past. I loved the free and welcoming atmosphere there. In a city like New York, I want to see how jewelries of h Home will be percieved.



Q4. What does it mean to be a jewelry designer for you?

For me, in daily life, wearing jewelries was absolutely necessary just like wearing clothes. Being a jewelry designer, I can express myself very freely. I think, from now on, as I change, it grows with me.




Q5. Lastly, please share some comments to customers at the ARCADE JAPAN.
