Multi-faceted artist, Akiko Tsuji now creates one-of-a-kind, handmade exclusive women's wear often using unusual combination of fabrics and sculpting them intuitively. As a ceramic artist she considers her creations as “art that are functional”. With that, she has collaborated with Paloma Wool in Barcelona, Maman NYC, Chillhouse NYC, Departamento (DPTO.LA), as well as created works for Virgil Normal LA, Seldom Seen SF, Bells Coffee & Design NYC, White is Good Beijing, and wholesaled works for Steven Alan in East and West coasts. Akiko Tsuji offers artistic yet easy to wear pieces for individuals that are of our time. In both fashion and ceramics, she is inspired by nature, simplicity, modern architecture, art, and wabi-sabi approach.
Before relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area, she has worked over 15 years as a design and branding studio co-founder of Kon/struktur in Brooklyn whose clients include Yohji Yamamoto, ZERO + Maria Cornejo, the City of London, Evian, etc. Inspired by the Bauhaus school of thought and Eames, she continues to use her sense and skill of designing in creating her world of broad artistic expression. This includes fashion, ceramics, painting and publishing.
She is also the editor and publisher of Famous Aspect Magazine.
