An emerging Japanese designer Mikage Shin.
Mikage Shin, an emerging Japanese designer based in New York, brings a cultural infusion fashion show at The Art Gala 2019.
Mikage Shin is an aspiring designer for Japan, who is rapidly making her mark within the underground fashion scene. Even though she came to New York in 2017, Mikage has already completed three successful runway shows in NY, one of which was held during NYFW 2018.
Following their parents’ divorce, Mikage lived with her mother and sister. The young woman began to contemplate what was the best life for women; what was the importance of nationality; and what shaped one’s identity. Since youth, Mikage has been interested in social issues and what constitutes social norms. She had challenged a number of said values during her senior year in high school.
In addition, she was enamored with another thing: FASHION. Mikage was impressed by the manner, in which fashion can form different impressions about one person, from one style to the next.
Thanks to fashion, she could gain self-confidence.
In 2014, Mikage graduated from Waseda University and entered Dentsu as a marketing planner in 2014. However, she was unwilling to give up her dreams. This led her to quit the company and entered the PARSONS School of Design in 2017. While a student at Parsons, Mikage Shin became an aspiring designer for Japan; she is rapidly carving her own path through the underground fashion scene. Her works have already been published in several media outlets, both digital and in print. They included Flanelle Magazine and Soleil Magazine, to name a few. Mikage Shin recently reached a milestone in her early career during NYFW2018 with Lan of Fashion.
Mikage is eager to create new genderless and ageless brands for empowering today’s intelligent self-made woman and individual, who lives in such a difficult time without any unreasonable limitation and stereotype. The 20st century’s art history and 20st century’s social problems highly inspire her avant-garde designs. Since she firmly believes that fashion definitely can promote self-confidence and change their life greatly, she is creating best clothes today.
