When Masako Oka, a fashion graduate from Sugino Dress Maker Women’s College, arrived with her self- designed range of fashion appare lcashing on their eco-friendly nature, people around the fashion world got well confirmed that she was the next BIG THING on the fashion canvas.
With the basic aim to “promote the coexistence of fashion and environment”, she designs dresses which are made of eco-friendly fabrics. These fabrics can be made of corn, bamboo, soybeans etc.
Probably, the inspiration to jump onto the green fashion trend was inherited from the geographical conditions of her birthplace Nagano. As a matter of fact, everybody knows the eye-catching natural beauty of Nagano.
Masako Oka, a Japanese fashion designer, is a complete institution in herself. More clearly, she is not only a fashion designer as she is related to Nagano Fashion College, as a principal, also. Even she is a widely acclaimed color analyst. This adds something more to an already fashionably vibrant career of Masako Oka.
So far, almost for last thirteen years or more, she has organized a number of fashion shows which aim to assimilate the environment consciousness and fashion together. Even she has participated in many such fashion shows. Hence, whatever materials she has used in the making of her fashion products are recyclable in their nature.
For example, to make her eco-fashion movement’s emergence felt around the fashion world strongly, she organized certain fashion shows being called as “Co-existence of Environment and Fashion,” “Fashion for the Earth” etc. Needless to say, these were the first of their type in that part of the world.
In 2003, she introduced ECOMACO, a brand of her own promoting green and eco-friendly fashion. ECOMACO promises to provide products which are biodegradable and ensure the curbing of CO2. Moreover, she uses, most of the times, a type of specific thread made of fermented corn syrup.
