In 1987 Koji Tatsuno launched his own label.
In March 1990 he had his first runway presentation in Paris and, having achieved notice and with the support of Franca Sozzani, editor of Vogue Italy, he enjoyed success.
Tatsuno's garments are like sculptural relief. They are lyrical compositions reflecting his synthesis of modern technology and folkcraft. He has spent his career experimenting with rare craft techniques.
