On this episode I’m speaking with Pio, who is a partner at House Tokyo, a new all-service fashion design studio in Tokyo. I love her story because it shows that no matter where you come from, if you start with a humble attitude and a willingness to learn, you can build something really awesome in Japan. I hope you enjoy this conversation.
