Keiko’s swimwear career began in November 1979 when photographer Phillip Dixon asked her to make swimsuits for the cover of “Oui” Magazine. This inspired her to manufacture a swimwear collection. Her collection was sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Barneys, Bloomingdale’s as well as other major specialty stores and catalogs. In 1995, Keiko opened her first retail store in SoHo.
Sensitive to her customers’ desires, Keiko began offering made to measure suits in a variety of inventive styles and colors. Always the artist, Keiko was next inspired by beautiful fabrics and French laces to create a stunningly original line of lingerie, which can also be customized.
