Melanie Uematsu and The Tokyo Sewing Circle

Melanie Uematsu is a German fashion designer, living in Tokyo.

She has been working in Tokyo since 2002 for Tsumori Chisato and Uniqlo as a designer, and was the artdirector and PR Manager for all international affairs at Design Tshirt stores graniph and Jurgen Lehl.

When her daughter was born, she decided to turn freelance.

To pass on her creative experience in fashion design, she started to teach sewing classes, patternmaking and tailoring in December 2010 and opened her studio in Oyamadai one year later in 2011.

Since then she is welcoming a wonderful international clientele of male and female, who live in Tokyo and are interested to learn sewing and to realise their own design ideas.

Beside her classes, she works for professional and start-up fashion brands and creates patterns and first production samples (mock-up’s).

Furthermore she offers an order made tailoring service for women’s, men’s and kid’s wear, as well as fine tailoring for evening gowns and wedding dresses.

All her patterns are created by the brand new version of grafis CAD software
