Fashion: Custom made Couture Creations

Fashion stylist and designer, I draw for you, before you, the garment that suits you perfectly:

  • suit, dress, evening dress, wedding dress, shirt, pants, top...

Art: Painting, Sumi-e

The basis of my work of representation appeals to the Japanese culture of sumi-e painting and indigo dye, to which I try to add this touch of elegance learned as Parisian seamstress and assistant of JF Crahay, designer high fashion at Lanvin.

My desire to paint goes back to my adolescence, when one day my body was crossed by an electric shock. I was suddenly taken by the urge to paint on the walls of my room.



Sakazaki Kyoko (future Kyoko Reaux) was born in Japan, Tokushima.
