Yasuko studied fashion design in Tokyo, where she went on to work as a designer for ten years. She moved to the United States in 1987, and worked as a fashion designer in Los Angeles for 4 years before starting her own line, “YASUKO,” with her husband. Her wholesale customers have included Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel and Nordstrom. Her designs have appeared in national magazines, on celebrities, and in movies and on television.
Yasuko’s signature designs often feature the use of Japanese textiles, especially vintage kimono silk. Many of these textiles feature a quality of workmanship which is now only produced by a handful of artisans, making them nearly unobtainable today.
In late 1998, Yasuko moved to Sonoma County, where, in 2002, she opened her much beloved store in Healdsburg. She is still wholesaling her original clothing lines throughout the United States and Canada to better boutiques.

A unique shopping destination for clothing and textiles. YASUKO is available at better boutiques nationally, but this is her only retail store. YASUKO combines designer Yasuko’s cultural and aesthetic roots, conscientious construction, the artistry of vintage Japanese textiles, and tradition-inspired contemporary/classic design elements. YASUKO cottons, artisanally hand-crafted in Indonesia, are easy-to-wear and machine washable. The Made-in-USA line features kimono silk accents on casual/elegant designs. YASUKO One-of-a-Kind, meticulously created from rare, recovered kimono silk, is exclusive to the Healdsburg location.
YASUKO is also a destination for quilters and artists, for the wide assortment of traditional Japanese textiles unavailable elsewhere. A fastidiously curated selection of hand-crafted jewelry and artfully designed clothing lines from American and international designers make YASUKO a unique shopping experience.
