Shinya Seki

Born in Osaka, Japan.

In his childhood, Shinya loved to play in his grandfather’s garment factory and learned how enjoyable it is to create from scratch.  

He studied creation and techniques at Bunka Fashion College and developed his own draping technique. He immersed himself in the search of innovative ways to make fabrics for the regional production and created new designs using traditional Japanese techniques and natural materials from the local area.  

As a result of his efforts, he won many international competitions while he was at college. 

In 2011, he launched his own brand “shinyaseki” in Shibuya Tokyo and set up his atelier.  


Shinyaseki creates a unique combination of traditional Japanese know-how, natural fabrics and original draping techniques. The designer’s distinctive minimalist style makes the best use of the texture of natural materials.   


Shinyaseki has started exhibiting collection in Paris since 2017.  

His collection is known and highly appreciated in many countries such as France, Israel, Greece, and the United States.
