KAZU HUGGLER is one of a new generation of fashion designers making waves in the fashion and art scene today.
Born in Tokyo to a Japanese mother and a Swiss father, Kazu was raised in both Japan and Switzerland. After completing the International Baccalaureate in Zurich, she enrolled in Tokyo’s Keio University and graduated with a degree in Japanese History of Art and Aesthetics. Her label is heavily influenced by Japanese themes—kimono patterns, ancient printmaking, Japanese aesthetics, and traditional attitudes/philosophies of dressing. While most of Kazu’s inspiration comes from her strong Japanese background, her designs are geared for the global marketplace and made in Switzerland.
