A showcase with the breakthrough young stylist and his shoot with photographer Naruo Masami
- Text by Emi Kameoka
Tokyo is a hard place to be a ‘proper’ stylist. To put the tag back is a necessity, and the right hangers, and the right paper bags. You cannot be a stylist, unless you can cover all the small basics and find time to be creative. Tatsuya Shimada is an upcoming young stylist who assisted Shun Watanabe for four years, making his way through. Here is an exclusive story for Satellite Voices, shot with Naruo Masami. Satellite Voices interviewed Tatsuya about his background and the concept of this shoot.
Satellite Voices: Why did you decide to be a stylist?
Tatsuya Shimada: I just fell in love with all the scenes from the movie "Quadrophenia" including every costume when I was in junior high school. And I really got into styling as I could meet a lot of creative people through work.
SV: When do you feel happy while you are styling?
Tatsuya Shimada: When am on a set with good vibe.
SV: What is your styling policy?
Tatsuya Shimada: I always want to put some culture aspects somehow in my styling.
SV: Please tell us your theme of these pictures.
Tatsuya Shimada: I made the leather jacket and I love how it is simple and it looks like a portrait picture.
SV: What is your future project?
Tatsuya Shimada: Am working on my own website and would love to explore in my field more!
